The Federal Government has abandoned its in specie transfer crack-down, but it has done so discretely. Possibly one of the most significant SMSF recommendations arising from the Super System Review was that in specie transfers of listed securities be on-market only to remove the possibility of abuse as to the value and date of the transaction.
