2021 Death... & Taxes Conference

event  19 August 2021 - 20 August 2021  |  Hilton Brisbane

The leading event on the topic of estate administration

Now in its fifth year and held in a hybrid format for the first time, The Tax Institute's Death... & Taxes Conference is unquestionably the leading estate taxation event in the country and a “must” for all tax and legal practitioners involved in succession planning and estate administration.

At this year’s jam-packed conference, industry experts will share their expertise on an amazing line-up of topics, including about the administration process for an estate of a person who operated a business during their lifetime, navigation of division 6 in an estate context, administering an SMSF on death, a dive into the re-emerging provisions of 99B and 100A, as well as a session dedicated to actual stories from the trenches and a special virtual case study streamed live from the US on the treatment of US assets and how residency issues impact US estate taxes.

With the client bases of many practitioners ageing, the complexities of asset holdings and family arrangements increasing, and the highest ever intergenerational wealth transfers now occurring, practitioners need to invest time in developing an understanding of the taxation of deceased estates. This is an emerging market and opportunity for many, but equally one that has seen an unprecedented growth in litigation. It therefore presents risks and tax nuances that practitioners must manage and be alert to.

At The Tax Institute, the health and wellbeing of our employees, members and delegates is our top priority. To read more information on our COVID-19 event guidelines, please click here.
