When an asset is unexpectedly destroyed, taxpayers are usually focused on maximising insurance entitlements under their policy and the tax treatment of the proceeds can be an afterthought.

This will help taxpayers with options in determining how to best apply proceeds to their advantage. This article will run through a case study concerning a warehouse destroyed by fire.
