GST hot topics & recent developments presentation


The GST system continues to develop and mature with a number of important cases and rulings continuing to emerge on a regular basis. This presentation examines and explores some of the key developments that have taken place over the past 12 months including:

  • reliance Carpets and the treatment of security deposits
  • the approach of the Courts and AAT to the imposition of penalties for nonpayment/underpayment of GST
  • mixed and composite supplies - when is something really "free"?
  • the application of GST to charities and not-for-profits
  • trusts and bare trusts as separate taxpaying entities
  • real property - continuing to create real issues especially for residential property developers.
