    Hi all

    Just doing a SMSF assignment and wanted to to know your feedback/opinions on the following scenario:

    If a client is nearing $0 in his cash account inside his SMSF, and fees and charges were to take his account into a negative, would this constitute a loan from the SMSF to the client?
    What would the client need to do in order to avoid any issues and ATO penalties, while the client organised funds to be contributed into the low balance cash account?

    Thanks all
