The top ten risks for DIY fund operators in 2016

No time to relax. SMSF trustees need to consider the risks ahead in 2016 and act now.

Summary: Changes to superannuation legislation in 2016 depend on which party wins the next federal election and what their targets are for saving going forward. Unless we hear something to the contrary soon, it looks likely that the Coalition will make some changes to taxation of pension funds, while Labor’s policy is to tax income from drawn from pension funds over $75,000. Super savers also need to watch for changes to transition to retirement arrangements and any policies to come out of the tax white paper.

Key take out: Pressure on the federal budget means that super savers need to be vigilant about potential policy changes, as reviews are likely.
