Trans Tasman Taxation - Investing in our ANZAC neighbour

Published on 08 Apr 2003 | Took place at Le Meridien at Rialto, Melbourne , VIC

Trans Tasman taxation issues are in the spotlight following the recent announcement by the Treasurer that Australia and New Zealand will extend their imputation systems to include companies resident in the other country.

With the focus on reform of the 'triangular tax problem', it is timely to examine the range of complex taxation issues associated with investing in our ANZAC neighbour.

In this seminar, Australian/NZ tax experts help you understand the complexities, alternatives, risks and critical opportunities associated with Trans Tasman investment and trade, including:
- strategic funding alternatives
- questions of dual residency, migration and branches
- operation of the respective anti-avoidance regimes
- implications of the triangular tax reform proposals.
