When assisting clients on how to plan, one usually begins with the end in mind, which incorporates focus on the “planned end” like a trade sale or family transfer while maintaining flexibility for the unplanned. Care needs to be taken when doing the groundwork to ensure that clients can maintain and realise value both now and in the future. As well as addressing most of the income tax rollovers and concessions that are useful to help restructure value, this session will also consider:

  • Intellectual property, social media, and ownership.
  • Managing valuation issues involving complex structures taking into account cases, affiliates and connected entities.
  • Whether Subdiv 328-G helps in these situations?
  • Buyer versus seller considerations.
