This paper unravels the complexities of the GST legislation as it relates to real estate, with examples provided to help readers understand both strategic benefits gained from the introduction of the GST and the requisite compliance requirements relating to property. The paper will assist tax practitioners to recognise and plan for GST liabilities when advising clients involved with real estate transactions. It focuses on transitional issues, construction agreements, and commercial and residential leases.
