This event examined the Income Tax and GST issues associated with the different phases of a typical mining project. The focus was on an analysis of relevant tax issues and how they interact with the typical lifecycle of a resources mining project.
With South Australia in the midst of significant growth in the resources sector this event was relevant to those who work in the resources sector, or have clients either directly or indirectly (investors) involved in resources projects. As resources projects face a wide range of taxation issues, this event provided attendees with structured knowledge of these issues in a practical fashion.
