Goods and services tax–Practical issues paper


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.
