The benefits of SMSF lending 

On advice from your accountant or financial advisor, one potential way to purchase your practice premises could be through your SMSF. As specialists lending to doctors, dentists and vets, BOQ Specialist has in-depth knowledge of what can be a very confusing and overwhelming process. 

We have assisted many clients who have chosen to purchase their practice premises in their SMSF. There are pros and cons when using this strategy to build wealth in your retirement and depending on your circumstances, it could provide a very tax-effective way to purchase your practice location. Some of the benefits include:

- You have a low risk tenant (the tenant is you and your practice);

- The rent you pay is used to pay back the loan;

- There could be potential tax savings; and 

- You are locking in rent at the time of purchasing the premises.
