Capital gain is only half the battle. The other is taking into account other tax factors. This paper focusses on some of the practical problems of property transactions using case studies. Topics covered include:
- are you carrying on a business/enterprise?
- when do I register for GST?
- are you a joint venture or partnership?
- commercial loss rules - can they apply?
- what happens if you do not proceed with the development?
