Unravelling Structuring and Taxation Mysteries of Retirement Villages and Nursing Homes

Published on 14 Jun 2006 | Took place at Rydges Riverwalk, Richmond , VIC

The retirement village and nursing home industry is growing rapidly, with the pace likely to accelerate as baby boomers grow old and need care.

Already a complex web of laws, regulations, ATO pronouncements and transitional rules have developed which need to be understood by anyone advising in this area.

These materials will help taxation advisers and industry participants, including retirement village and nursing home operators, trying to unravel some of the complexities which surround the structuring, development, ownership, management and sale of retirement villages and nursing homes. They not only address the challenges but also the planning and other opportunities which exist.
