My husband and I are trustees of my self-managed super fund. I'm 53 and will contribute my personal holding of shares into this fund as an "in specie transfer". Can I apportion $30,000 of it as a concessional contribution? In the 2011-12 financial year, I earned dividends of $70,000 and I could reduce my tax if I make a concessional contribution into the SMSF. I plan to contribute the balance of the "in specie' transfer", about $420,000, as a non-concessional contribution.
