Annual Property Intensive: The essential tax update

Published on 21 Sep 2006 | Took place at The Chifley on Lennons, Brisbane, QLD

Given the ongoing tax changes in the property industry, it is incumbent on all advisers to keep up to date. This annual property intensive focussed on the changes that have occurred in the past year.

Advisers to property developers, owners and investors are constantly called upon to advise on an incredibly wide range of tax issues and transactions, property also continues to be a focus area of the Tax Office. In this context this annual event focussed on changes and new issues facing the property sector, including the Tax Office’s approach, and highlighted how these issues may impact developers and investors.
