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 has 35 years experience in the Australian Tax Office and was appointed Second Commissioner (Law) in December 2006. Bruce has overall responsibility for the Tax Office’s interpretation of the tax laws and input to the design and implementation of new laws. During his career in the Tax Office, Bruce has had diverse
responsibilities across income tax and indirect taxes. He is considered an international expert in GST and has advised overseas jurisdictions on the implementation of GST regimes. Bruce previously held the position of Deputy Chief Tax Counsel and National Program Manager for the Tax Counsel Network.
