This session will cover the intricacies of the main residence exemption, a pivotal aspect of income tax legislation that can significantly impact a person's most valuable asset—their main residence.

We will explore the nuances of this generous exemption including its burdensome qualification criteria and how particular actions or inactions can result in the loss of the exemption in whole or in part.

Our presenters will cover the following key topics:

  • Unlocking income potential from a main residence
  • Strategies for preserving the exemption during demolition or subdivision
  • Navigating succession and deceased estate issues, and
  • Understanding the impact of absences, particularly for foreign residents.

Understanding the intricacies of family trust elections is crucial, especially considering the complexities surrounding the definition of the 'family group' and the concept of 'distributions.' Misinterpretation of these rules can lead to unintended tax consequences, particularly the triggering of the family trust distribution tax. Family trust distribution tax, if triggered, is a debt that is not subject to a review period and for which the entity (which makes the distribution), together with the individuals who are directors or trustees, can be jointly liable. Therefore, it is important that advisers understand the concepts of ‘family group’ and ‘distributions’.

This session will delve into:

  • The ramifications of FTE or IEE
  • Instances mandating FTE or IEE
  • Prerequisites for a valid FTE or IEE, including considerations for testamentary trusts and the 'family control' test
  • Unpacking the concept of 'distributions'
  • Identifying individuals and entities constituting the 'family group'
  • FTDT liability attribution
  • Facilitating trust succession to the next generation.
