22nd National Tax Intensive Retreat

Published on 06 Nov 2014 | Took place at Sheraton Resort & Spa, Noosa, National

This event focused on core taxation principles and their practical application by tax advisers to the SME and family business sectors.

Sessions and workshops covered the following:

  • when are receipts on revenue account, as opposed to capital account? Is there a trend in the cases towards treating receipts as being of a revenue nature?
  • the “flip side” – when will outgoings be allowable deductions, rather than on capital account; Where are the courts going on this issue?
  • what methods can be used to extract value out of companies and trusts; what specific tax issues need to be considered?
  • what are the ATO’s current views on trusts, s100A, professional practice structures, and dividend access shares and related issues?
  • what is the current thinking regarding structuring and restructuring professional practices; what should be done given the technical framework and the ATO’s current position?
