Dealing with Property

Published on 10 Aug 2010 | Took place at Swissotel, Sydney , NSW

Although the concept of acquiring, investing and/or redeveloping real property may seem like straight-forward propositions, there are many revenue law ‘sleepers’ that may bring the un-wary unstuck. Planning and implementing appropriate structures and understanding their revenue law implications is therefore essential when acquiring and dealing with real property.

Further, and in order to minimize transaction and associated costs, careful consideration needs to be given to the intended and potential use of real property assets, as the revenue law implications related to the holding of property may differ depending on the use of the asset.

This event touched on all of the revenue laws which apply to real property - from GST, CGT and income tax to stamp duties and land tax. It revisited the fundamentals and reviewed recent developments as well as looked at the specific issues that arise in the context of ‘partitioning’ of land, and dealing with company title.
