Structuring advice needs to be comprehensive and cover at least commercial operation, tax, succession and last but not least, asset protection. The business structure should provide the best possible basis for resisting creditors' claims. Recent changes to bankruptcy laws have made this even more challenging. This presentation session covers those changes and also these issues:
- how did things go for Mrs Cummins?
- new rules for associate party transactions
- is a transfer to your spouse likely to succeed?
- what is happening about super contributions?
