2011 National GST Intensive

Published on 08 Sep 2011 | Took place at The Langham, Melbourne , National

The Tax Institute’s annual GST Intensive is the pre-eminent national conference for GST specialists.

This event continued to have the popular mix of plenary and workshop sessions which covered the latest issues in the perennial problem areas of financial supplies, property and cross-border transactions.

There was also a case update session which provided a panel discussion around the most recent GST cases that gave a deeper insight into each case.

Finally there was a panel session that included a number of high-profile speakers who examined the question of when tax planning starts and stops for Div 165 purposes. This is an important area for practitioners to be mindful of in light of the Australian Taxation Office’s practice of issuing taxpayer alerts in order to keep the taxpaying community informed.
