2nd Annual Property Intensive

Published on 10 Sep 2003 | Took place at Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney , NSW

Property remains one of the main targets for the tax collectors. During the last year there has been a significant and ongoing GST audit program, substantial steps by the Tax Office to review various leasing arrangements in terms of Division 6C, and ongoing amendments to stamp duty legislation, which further tighten the noose around being able to transfer property in a stamp duty-efficient manner.

In addition to this, the ongoing changes to the applicable accounting standards make the problem of managing your profit and balance sheet increasingly difficult.

These seminar materials will lead you through the minefield created by all of these various issues.
