The taxation of trusts is a topic that is something of a maze for practitioners and the ATO alike. Bruce Quigley’s recent presentation touches upon trust cloning, the decision in Cajkusic and some other current trust issues which ideally will eventually be clarified legislatively or judicially.
Bruce Quigley, CTA, has been Senior Adviser with The Tax Institute since April 2015. He assists in the preparation of submissions to the government, Treasury, Board of Tax, Tax Practitioners Board and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) in relation to various tax and superannuation issues. Bruce has over 45 years’ experience in tax administration, compliance, interpretation, policy and law design, culminating in seven years serving as Second Commissioner of Taxation, the second most senior position in the ATO. Since retiring from the ATO in December 2013, Bruce has undertaken various policy, diagnostic and technical assistance missions in a number of countries as a Revenue Adviser for the Fiscal Affairs Department of the International Monetary Fund.
