A plethora of property issues to ponder paper

Published on 13 Mar 08 by NATIONAL EVENTS, TAXATION INSTITUTE OF AUSTRALIA

Many property developers are still getting it wrong. From small developers building a couple of units, to larger complexes with many apartments, there are numerous GST issues to be addressed to ensure that any ATO audit activity is not a problem. With Australia's ageing population, an increase in the number of retirement villages has also created some GST traps. The key issues covered in this paper are:

  • retirement villages
  • margin scheme overview including a look at rulings and cases
  • developments hard to sell - let's rent it out. A look at the change of purpose rules
  • calculation of the ITC clawback on change of purpose.
