    The implications for depreciation are exactly the same as if the property was owned outside of a SMSF- it reduces the taxable income.

    Tax will depend on a few things. Generally income of a SMSF is taxed at 15%. But the SMSF can claim the usual deductions.

    If the fund is paying a pension then the income could be tax free.

    The second question is why would you pay cash for the property when you gear and depending on the amount concerned buy a couple of properties within the SMSF.
