SMSF Podcast Show - Episode #11

March 10, 2014
In the first of what will be a regular podcast with the ATO on SMSF issues, Aaron is in this episode joined by Nathan Burgess, Director of Tax & Regulatory Risks for the SMSF Segment within the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to discuss the topical issue of SMSF Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangements.

Aaron and Nathan discuss a broad range of issues within this LRBA topic, including:
  • the heightened level of media coverage with LRBAs and how the ATO is risk assessing these arrangements;
  • what areas are attracting the interest of the Regulator; and
  • an update on the current legislative instrument (to be finalised) providing certainty around various in-house asset issues.
This podcast provides some great insights into the ATO's current state of play on LRBAs, but more broadly evidencing a maturing SMSF sector.
