This seminar paper covers the following issues:
- when should proceeds from property sales be treated as income and when should they be treated as capital gains?
- can a property seller still distinguish between a 'mere realisation' of a capital asset versus a profit making scheme or a business operation?
- when does a property owner become a developer for tax purposes?
- does a one off property development constitute an 'enterprise' for GST purposes and when must GST be paid?
