Recent Developments in Property Development

Published on 06 Aug 2009 | Took place at RACV Club, Melbourne, VIC

This event was aimed at accountants, tax agents and lawyers who have clients interested in property development. Property development structuring involves consideration of a number of complex tax and legal issues including income tax, CGT, GST, state duties, land tax and now the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC).

Knowledge of these constantly evolving areas is required to fully inform and advise clients of their tax and legal obligations, regardless of the size and scale of the development in question.

This event covered a number of key tax and legal issues relating to the structuring and running of property development activities in Victoria.
