Monitoring your $1.6 million transfer balance cap

As of 1 July 2017, you may be aware of the restrictions that have been placed on the amount of super you can transfer into retirement phase within your self managed super fund.  These new rules require you to remove any excess super benefits from your pension accounts to ensure they remain within the cap limits.

The SMSF Association’s Head of Education and Technical, Peter Hogan, will guide you through the details of the $1.6 million transfer balance cap and transfer balance account. These changes may have different effects on each member within your fund so it is important you understand how the rules relate to your specific circumstances. Ensure you understand the 1 July changes and have made the necessary adjustments, if required, so that your fund remains compliant.

This webinar will also focus on what happens to your transfer balance cap and transfer balance account when a member dies and the effects of the latest rules on defined benefit fund members.

Duration: 50 minutes

Presented by: Peter Hogan, Head of Education and Technical, SMSF Association
