  • As the Assistant Treasurer, the Hon Michael Sukkar MP, is centrally involved with the government’s tax policy. The global and national tax landscape has changed significantly over the last decade, presenting numerous challenges for the government to reform and modernise Australia’s tax system. The bushfire crisis, the floods and the COVID-19 pandemic this year have compounded to bring additional and unforeseen challenges to the economy. The Assistant Treasurer will cover some of the most topical issues the government is currently facing in these areas.

  • The Australian tax system has inherent features that inadvertently compound the negative impacts of difficult trading periods. In response to the coronavirus, some taxpayers have needed to raise capital, others have suffered significant losses. For other taxpayers, previously unplanned acquisitions or disposals of businesses have or will occur. This session will use examples to cover the Australian income tax impacts indirectly arising from the coronavirus on:

    - The ability to use tax losses in the future

    - The impact of refinancing or writing off debts

    - The reduced ability to gear ongoing operations and associated thin capitalisation impacts

    - The tax consolidation impacts of acquiring distressed entities or selling loss making businesses
