SMSF

LIXI has responded to member requests for the LIXI Application schema to support the data required to carry a self-managed superfund investment property loan application. Accordingly, CAL (from version 1.5c) supports SMSF applications as a “Loan” in terms of the application type and a “Full Doc” in terms of the documentation type. The basic requirements for SMSF applications can be accommodated within the CAL schema as follows:

  • Applicant 1 is the SMSF trust, as Borrower, with the trustee details also provided and @TrustType="SMSF";
  • Income@Type for Applicant 1 (the SMSF trust/trustee) may include concessional and / non-concessional contributions;
  • Applicant 2 is the Security Trust, as Guarantor, with the trustee details also provided and @TrustType="SecurityTrust". The SMSF trust is shown as the Beneficiary of the Security trust;
  • The purchased property is owned by Applicant 2 (the Security trust/trustee, as guarantro) and is offered as security for the loan;
  • Additional guarantors (most likely persons) may need to be provided either to show income, to offer other security, or both;
  • Rental income is associated with purchased property
  • The fact that an application is for an SMSF product may be addressed within a lender-specific notification, for instance, as an enumeration in the Application@Type.
