Division 250 had a difficult birth and is proving to be a troublesome infant. The law is derived from anti-avoidance issues connected with dealing with tax exempt state government entities but it now has an impact on ordinary, commercial real estate transactions. This presentation considers some of the practical difficulties and unresolved issues arising from the application of Division 250, including:
the impact of financing multiple properties with single debt facility
what is the most appropriate measure of expected financial benefits?
how to calculate the value of a building at the end of an arrangement
whether it is appropriate to apply Division 250 to foreign property held through a foreign entity
the impact of borrowing from an offshore financial institution on the limited recourse debt test.
