The Government has announced that reforms to the tax benefit test in Part IVA will be introduced into Parliament by the end of 2012. These changes will be the first significant amendments to the core provisions of Part IVA since it was introduced in 1981. Part IVA continues to be among the most important, controversial and complex parts of the Australian tax system and will be discussed from the perspective of its efficacy, workability and fairness, having regard to global comparisons.
Tony Slater QC, FTIA, has represented both taxpayers and the Commissioner in GST disputes in appellate courts, from the time the tax was introduced. Many of the cases in which he has appeared have concerned the scope of the “supply” on which GST is levied. He is a longstanding member of the Institute and a frequent speaker at its conferences.
