In recent AAT cases, the ATO has challenged the extent to which taxpayers must sever their ties with Australia, in order to cease being an Australia tax resident. This highlights the difficulty Australian citizens and permanent residents can face in satisfying the burden of proof that they are no longer subject to tax in Australia on their world-wide income and gains. A sound foundation of the tax consequences of ceasing tax residency and the on-going CGT and individual income tax implications is a must for any tax practitioner advising employees and investors going overseas.
