Property development & GST presentation

Published on 18 Oct 08

Property developers face complex and changing GST rules and contentious scrutiny and approaches by the ATO. 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. This presentation covers:

  • margin scheme overview including a look at rulings and cases
  • change of purpose rules when leasing residential property
  • GST complicating retirement village developments.
