Benefits Of Using Your Super To Invest In Property

It is a no-brainer that the affordability of housing has become a major challenge for Australians. It can be quite difficult for many first home buyers to get their foot into the property market. A great option available for potential investors to help them break into the increasingly difficult property market is through the use of a SMSF (self-managed super fund). It is important to keep in mind that you are unable to invest in and purchase property with a standard industry super fund.

Below we have outlined the various benefits that come with using your super to invest in property:

Provides Tax Advantages

Particularly if you have a high-yield property, it may be beneficial to purchase and invest in the property using your superannuation. Any income that you earn will be taxed at 15% as compared to your personal tax rate, which is usually much higher. The tax rate on capital gains can drop to just 10% after you have held your property for over a year. If you do plan on selling your property after you enter into your pension phase, you will no longer pay tax on capital gains.

In addition, the interest this is accrued is tax deductible for your SMSF. This can aid in reducing your SMSF’s tax obligations.

Aids in Saving for a Deposit

As the cost of living keeps increasing, it is becoming impossible for people to keep up with this trend, meaning it is very difficult for them to save up for their first home deposit. Using your superannuation to get into the property market sooner rather than later provides individuals with the extra leg up that they need to purchase their very first home.

Benefits are Enhanced for Business Owners

Business owners can hold their commercial premises under their SMSF and pay market-value rent to the SMSF. By purchasing your business premises in a SMSF, business owners can minimise the tax paid on rental income and can guarantee an asset for their retirement without the need to alter their business cash flow. In this case, your business is becoming a tenant of your SMSF and pays rent to it like it would to any other landlord.

Strengthens your Retirement Income

When it comes to your self-managed super fund, it can catch all of your income and capital gains from the property investment in your super. Plus, if there happens to be no loan on the property that your SMSF owns, you can utilise this rental income to help fund your pension account. This investment income is known as Exempt Current Pension Income (ECPI) and may be tax exempt.
