Non-Arm’s Length Expenditure Of Complying Super Entities

Legislation has recently been passed to ensure that any goods or services provided by a trustee of a superannuation fund is at arm’s length.

Non-arm’s length expenses incurred by a superannuation entity in gaining or producing assessable income will result in such income being taxed at 47%.

This can include for example a real estate agent providing management services or a builder providing their labour to build or repair an asset owned by the fund.
