A regular, high yield income that can far outweigh other forms of investment.
Capital Gains Tax
On any US property held over 6 months, capital gains will be taxed at just 10%. This is compared to 30% for companies or for individuals.
Depending on your situation, these other rates may apply:
- 15.75% with taxable income between $35,000 and $80,000
- 19.75% with taxable income between $80,000 and $180,000
- 23.25% with taxable income exceeding $180,000
Any tax you pay through your SMSF outside of Australia on your property is offset against tax paid in Australia by way of tax credit.

If your SMSF owns your investment property, you may even be eligible for further tax exemptions on your investment income!
Imagine receiving a steady income every month, for the rest of your life…
Some people do not recommend that a SMSF invests directly in US property as an asset protection strategy. This is because in the event of any litigation arising from the US property investment, the assets of the SMSF will be potentially exposed. In this regard, it is recommended that a special purpose vehicle be incorporated to invest in US properties (such as a Australian Pty Ltd company as trustee for a Unit Trust, or in some cases a US incorporated Limited Liability Company (LLC), with the SMSF owning all the units in the Unit Trust or all the shares in the LLC. Do not worry if this sounds complicated, our investment advisors will walk you through the whole process so you know exactly what you are getting into.
