The income of your SMSF is generally taxed at a concessional rate of 15%. To be entitled to this rate, your fund has to be a ‘complying fund’ that follows the laws and rules for SMSFs. For a non-complying fund the rate is the highest marginal tax rate.
The most common types of assessable income for complying SMSFs are assessable contributions, net capital gains, interest, dividends and rent.
