Foreign Currency Gains & Losses - the next instalment seminar paper

Published on 27 Feb 03 by NATIONAL EVENTS, TAXATION INSTITUTE OF AUSTRALIA

The taxation of foreign currency gains and losses has long been a complex and important issue for all financial institutions. This seminar paper picks up on the latest developments.
- What is wrong with the current law and administration and needs fixing?
- Revenue/capital characterisation and hedging rules
- Review of draft legislation (assuming released) as announced in the 2002 Federal Budget
- What else should be done - are the proposed rules adequate for players in the financial services industry?
