SMSF Asset Diversification | Stable Income Stream | Capital Growth | Tax Advantages | Control and Flexibility | Limited Recourse Borrowing 

Asset Diversification

SMSF for Commercial provides an opportunity to diversify your SMSF's investment portfolio. Diversification helps spread risk and can enhance the overall stability of your superannuation fund. A mix of asset classes, including commercial property, can help mitigate the impact of poor performance in any single sector

Stable Income Stream

SMSF for Commercial investments can potentially generate stable and regular income through rental payments from tenants. This can be particularly attractive for SMSF members seeking a reliable income stream during retirement. Commercial leases typically have longer terms than residential leases, providing a more predictable cash flow

Capital Growth

Commercial properties may experience capital growth over time, potentially increasing the value of your SMSF's investment. The value of commercial real estate can be influenced by factors such as location, economic conditions, and demand for commercial space. Capital growth can contribute to the overall growth of your superannuation savings

Tax Advantages

MSFs can benefit from certain tax advantages when investing in commercial property. For example, rental income received by the SMSF is generally taxed at the concessional superannuation tax rate, and capital gains made on the sale of the property may be eligible for a discount if the property has been held for at least 12 months.

Control and Flexibility

One of the primary attractions of SMSFs is the level of control and flexibility they offer to members. With an SMSF, you have the ability to make investment decisions, including the selection and management of commercial properties. This can be appealing for individuals who want a hands-on approach to their superannuation investments

Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangements

SMSFs have the option to use LRBA to borrow money for the purchase of a commercial property. This allows the SMSF to leverage its funds and acquire a property that may be beyond its immediate financial capacity. While this strategy involves risks and requires careful consideration, it can potentially enhance the overall return on investment
