Tax Issues in Building and Operating Retirement Villages
Published on 07 Sep 2005
| Took place at Holiday Inn Adelaide
The income tax and GST treatment of retirement villages is unique and highly complex.
From an income tax perspective the ATO issued Taxation Ruling TR 2002/14 Taxation of Retirement
Village Operators on the 28 June 2002 to replace Taxation Ruling TR 94/24. Three years on,
retirement village operators and their taxation advisers are in many cases still no closer to clarifying many of the unique tax issues that arise from both these rulings.
The GST issues faced by the industry are also difficult, albeit that the ATO has released a significant amount of information on the topic in recent years. Whilst the ATO has removed the GST
uncertainty for non-profits by ensuring their retirement village supplies are GST free the practical difficulties for other operators remain.
The purpose of this seminar was to address these taxation and GST issues and where possible draw
on practical experiences over the last three years to provide further guidance.
The seminar also covered the legal issues specific to the industry, including drafting resident documentation in accordance with Taxation Ruling TR 2002/14.
