This paper covers how well the GST legislation, ATO Rulings Program and the Courts are dealing with the realities and technicalities of:
- supplies of residential property - a working example
- going concerns - a working example
- the high level GST implications and issues arising in respect of everyday issues such as exports, insolvency, tough economic conditions, time limitations, year end and other "adjustments", and dispute resolution.
