Superannuation for many Australians is at risk of a 45 per cent penalty tax due to ATO rules around applying your own professional or trade skills to your personal life. 

And who is at most risk of this super rule? Accountants, solicitors, real estate agents and tradies. 

The current rules prohibit transactions with related parties at “mate’s rates” or no rate at all. Even mistakenly using a work laptop to complete a personal task could trigger a breach.

To examine this rule and offer CPA Australia’s view is Richard Webb, Policy Adviser for Superannuation and Financial Planning at CPA Australia.
