On 27 September 2016 the Government released another round of draft legislation implementing a number of the changes to superannuation it announced in the 2016 Federal Budget.
Many of these changes will apply from 1 July 2017 so it might be sensible to for you to start thinking of how your superannuation will be impacted by the changes now and whether you might need to change any of your SMSF’s arrangements.

This will most likely be the case if you have a superannuation balance of over or close to $1.6 million, were planning on making significant contributions to superannuation in the next few years, are a high income earner or have a transition to retirement pension in place now.
