2016 was a landmark year, as the world saw right wing populism gain momentum worldwide. The world is facing widespread discontent, evident from the shocking Brexit referendum and Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential elections. Europe, especially, saw one crisis unfold after another year long. In June 2016, the UK, a key member of the European Union (EU) stunned most global political pundits as the British voted to leave the EU. Moreover, Greece’s debt crisis and subsequent confrontations with European creditors fanned speculations of an imminent ‘Grexit’ throughout the year. Also, Italian PM Matteo Renzi had to step down after losing a referendum on constitutional reforms.

I read some handy advice today regarding capital gains tax. Whilst it relates to property, the message is clear: don’t mess it up this year.
According to a SmartCompany interview with accountant Shukri Barbara, the ATO has moved with the times and boosted its IT capabilities. The ATO can now access data others cannot, and match this data against your tax return.

Refusing to lock-in profits on a stock that’s become seriously overpriced just to avoid paying tax is as irrational as favouring an investment due to tax considerations over the underlying merits of the investment itself.
To ensure that a short sighted approach to tax issues doesn’t undermine the integrity of your overall investment strategy as a value investor - and consequently your investment returns - we’ve identified the most common tax traps and how to avoid them.
While you should do your best to legitimately minimise the tax you pay (on shares), it’s important to remember that paying tax is an unavoidable reality that is only ever triggered by your success as an investor. So if it’s right to realise a profit by selling shares, then render unto Caesar (a la the ATO) the tax owing on it and move on. Remember, companies won’t stay overpriced indefinitely, and certainly not without good reason.
If you have no choice than to sell shares to realise cash to pay tax and no single stock in your portfolio looks particularly overpriced, then sell down your most over-valued stocks first and maintain your exposure to those looking the most underpriced relative to intrinsic value.

SMSFs not using Skaffold Global are missing the upside of global stocks because they do not invest offshore due to the perceived cumbersome and expensive process.
There has been a significant performance gap between the performance of the Australian market and the wider world in recent months. According to Rainmaker data, the ASX 300 accumulation index is up 24% in the 12 months to 30 August while the MSCI World Index is up 37%.
With so much growth coming from the SMSF sector, a number of online brokers and wealth management firms have moved to make access to overseas stocks easier, including Skaffold, which was set up by well-known professional stock-pickers Roger Montgomery, Russell Muldoon and Chris Batchelor, and marketer Vanessa Gilbert.
