A very detailed discussion on how different residential properties will be treated during the transition of GST and after GST has been implemented.The objective of this paper is to make sense of the legislative nonsense about how real estate transactions are treated under the GST regime. In addition to these fundamental design problems, there are a number of practical issues which will be confronted by real estate agents, auctioneers, valuers, vendors, purchasers and tax advisers in a GST environment. This paper will attempt to explain some of these complexities and hopefully explain how these problems may be overcome.
