SMSF Masterclass

Upskill in a key area 

Our half-day masterclass is designed to provide practitioners with a high level of expertise in a key area of self-managed super.




Minimise tax with SMSF pensions

The income an SMSF earns from its assets to pay pensions is exempt from income tax – termed ‘exempt current pension income’ (ECPI). New ATO protocols for claiming ECPI take effect in FY 2017/18, with some significant differences to prior years.

Are you aware of which claim-method to now use and how it works? Will you need to obtain an actuarial certificate – and if so what additional supporting information must now be supplied?

Claiming ECPI has been traditionally seen as the domain of accountants. However, financial planners now need an understanding to be able to advise on asset sales and ECPI ramifications.

  • Learn the technical aspects of the ATO’s new ECPI approach and how it will affect the administration and compliance of SMSFs
  • Learn how pension and investment strategies are impacted and why there’s the need for forward planning, and not just retrospective accounting
  • Work through case studies that highlight the difference with new ECPI approach

Ideal for any professional servicing self-managed super funds, including:

  • Advisers
  • Accountants
  • Practice support staff
SMSF Association CPD points will be available
Institute of Public Accountants 3 CPE hours*
Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand  3 CPE points*
Tax Practitioners Board 3 CPE hours* 


*You should use your own professional judgement and assess whether our programme provides professionally relevant training and the appropriate number of CPD points or CPE hours. The above allocation assumes professionally relevant training and equates one hour of training with one CPD point or one CPE hour.
