  • Victorian Trusts Conference

    28 Nov 2019 | Fenix Events, Richmond | VIC

    By 2022, it is expected that over one million trusts will exist in Australia. The way our tax system regulates the behaviour and activities of those involved in trusts means that trusts and the taxation of trusts are complex. Uncertainty abounds for advisers, as establishing and administrating trusts also raises numerous practical and compliance issues. This event covered the following topics:

    • future of trusts: the RMIT report
    • trust vesting
    • Division 6 sleepers: Sec 99B and 100A: what they were meant to do versus what the ATO uses them for now
    • Div.152 CGT SBC and trusts: dynamite
    • residency and trusts
    • state taxes and trusts.
