Curiosity only: Can SMSFs lend to other SMSFs, Businesses, People etc? I don't have much in my super at the moment but when I do, am I allowed to lend (arms length and commercial terms ofcourse) to businesses and people I think are low risk. Some scenarios: 1. Someone buys a dump and is looking to reno and flip. I lend them money(secured or unsecured depending on the amount) for the renno, they do the job and flip-it and can either pay me back straight away or just stick to the 1 to 5 year term agreed when money is originally lent. 2. Find a start-up that I think has a lot of potential, say invest 10%(of valuation) and lend 10% Apart from the obvious risks of financial lending (capital loss) what are the other things to look out for?
