  • State Taxes - Duties and Provisions

    25 May 2017 | City West Receptions, West Perth | WA

    As we approach the end of another financial year, taxpayers will be looking to their advisers for assistance in completing their year-end transactions; typically involving the transfer of property into or out of trusts and SMSFs and entity restructures. The pivotal issue for many of these transactions is whether there are any transfer duty exemptions or concessions available to the taxpayers. This covered a practical approach to assisting advisers on:

    • determining the availability of common exemptions and concessions
    • to manage the assessment process (including liaising with the Office of State Revenue) to get the best and most efficient outcome for their clients.

  • National Infrastructure Conference

    25 May 2017 | Sheraton, Melbourne | VIC

    Investment in infrastructure is critical for maintaining living standards and creating the conditions in which our economy can continue to grow. Governments in Australia are increasingly looking to the private sector to develop and maintain roads, ports, pipelines, power and other essential infrastructure assets. The recent releases of a Tax Framework Document and Tax Alert on staples means there is much to debate.

    This event covered many issues that are relevant to our industry, including privatisation issues, debt/equity rules/Div 855/Div 6C interaction, applying anti-avoidance rules to staples, social infrastructure update, gifted assets and valuation.
