    HI, We are planning buy the commercial property under SMSF. We don’t have a set-up of the SMSF, however, we are signing the COS with and or nominee class. The siging people will be the director of the new SMSF. Following clarifications are required.

    – Do we have to setup the SMSF before signing the COS or we can start SMSF later before the settlement which is 8 months from now.
    – We have to borrow money from the bank for the purchase, what structure we have to follow
    – We have sufficient money for buying the property, however, we have to arrange fund for GST. Is it possible that SMSF can borrow money from Director to pay GST and return that money to the Director when the SMSF get the GST refund.

    Can some contact or advise us accordingly

      Raj,

      Its generally best to set up the SMSF first, roll funds into it and then proceed to asset purchases. To purchase property with an entity that does not exist yet may lead to double stamp duty.

      If there’s bank loans or related party loans, you will have to set up a bare trust structure in the SMSF to allow for borrowings. We explain a typical structure here:
      http://www.smsfwarehouse.com.au/smsf-investments/property/investment/

      As far as loans go for the GST portion, an SMSF can generally not have loans and you will have to set up a bare trust structure as noted above to allow for the SMSF to have loans.

      Trust this gives you some guidance.
