What issues do you need to watch out for when you’ve taken on a new client who has relocated to Australia? How do you treat their offshore investments? Can you improve the tax treatment of their accumulated wealth? This practical case study highlights issues such as:
‘onshoring’ accumulated wealth
loans from offshore (yes, Div 7A can apply)
accruals (CFC) taxation of foreign entities’ income
dealing with offshore retirement savings
maintaining ownership of a foreign business.
This paper also provides participants with valuable tips and traps so they can understand when Australian tax issues are likely to arise for their clients.
