Property 101: Melbourne University to run subject focusing heavily on SMSFs

The University of Melbourne will run a subject focusing heavily on SMSFs.

‘This is a great opportunity for the SMSF industry’, said DBA Lawyers’ director Bryce Figot, who is also a senior fellow at the University of Melbourne and is the subject’s coordinator. ‘Practitioners can now spend an intensive five days studying the latest developments, rules, policies and strategies relevant for SMSFs and receive University recognition,’ said Mr Figot.

The subject, titled Taxation of Superannuation, will run on 22, 23, 24, 27 and 28 February 2017. ‘Given the magnitude of recent changes to superannuation, which hopefully should be finalised and legislated by February for a 1 July 2017 start date, I feel the timing of the subject could not be better,’ said Mr Figot.

‘I believe Taxation of Superannuation is the first time a Victorian University has had a subject so relevant for those in the SMSF industry’ added Mr Figot.

Although run via the University's law school, the subject is also part of the Master of Taxation and the Graduate Diploma in Tax programs and is designed to be of tremendous use for accountants and financial planners.

The subject has a quota of 30 students.
