Emerging tax issues for wineries and viticulture presentation


In an environment of increasingly uncertain market conditions, further rationalisation and consolidation of the wine industry is anticipated. Many producers will need to consider off-loading surplus assets whilst others will be looking to refocus their branding and take advantage of the prevailing conditions to improve market share. This presentation reviews some of the significant tax issues that are likely to arise in this ever changing industry and reflects on the presenter's recent experience in dealing with winery acquisitions, sales and restructures. Topics covered include:

  • specific CGT and capital allowance issues relating to vineyard sales
  • tax issues relating to label and wine IP
  • update on the taxation treatment of water licences
  • WET developments.
