Division 7A downfalls - why you should worry!

Published on 02 Mar 2005 | Took place at Hawthorn Receptions, Hawthorn , VIC

The expectations on professionals who advise on Division 7A matters has been raised further in light of the ATO's increased audit activity.

The continued popularity of the use of trusts brings further Division 7A issues under the microscope of the special trust rules.

This session addressed the common Division 7A problems that are often overlooked by advisers who need to have mastered these issues.

Along with technical papers, case studies were provided to illustrate the main points raised.
