The capital revenue distinction in the current judicial landscape

Whether an amount is on capital or revenue account is a perennial issue for tax practitioners. The characterisation of an expense requires a critical analysis between the circumstances in which an amount is incurred and the application of legal principles. Tax practitioners should be equipped with an expert understanding of how the Courts have recently approached these issues and be able to identify and advise in areas where there continues to be uncertainty.

Join us for a 6-part webinar series scheduled throughout July and August where our presenters will consider each of the recent High Court and Federal Court decisions on this issue. The series will culminate in a facilitated panel discussion made up of tax and legal experts. Our all-star line-up of leading tax professionals will guide you through the issues, share their insights and provide practical solutions to the challenges experienced by practitioners in this area.
