    Family trust would be a related party = no.

    To do this legally Becca you would need a pre 1999 SMSF+Fixed Unit Trust structure.
    Go and search for ATO ID 2002/388 its a public Ruling from 2002 and its still in force.
    I have been working with these structures since 1992 and set up thousands from 1992 - 2000. The ATO lost the tax case Forli V FCT in April 1991 and they were legislated out in Dec1999 when Costello changed the law. But they do occasionally come on the market when people are retiring these days and can be successfully transferred if you know how to deal with them.
