Estate planning and winding up an SMSF presentation


As the population ages SMSF trustees & their advisers will be faced with the prospect of winding up an SMSF. This presentation considers the last ‘stage’ in the lifecycle of an SMSF, including:

  • ageing trustees – options if trustees become incapable of running their SMSF
  • death in a single member fund – who takes on control, and what options do beneficiaries have?
  • death of the ‘final’ pension or accumulation member in an SMSF
  • practical issues on winding up an SMSF, tricks and traps to look out for.
