When faced with potential marital/relationship breakdown, the taxation implications of the division of assets and entities is often the last thing on a client’s mind. Structures evolve over time, and are usually established with little or no consideration of the possibility of divorce.

This is a critical topic and impacts all SME practitioners at some point with considerations including:

  • Entity control and continuity of ownership issues
  • UPEs, Div 7A and Family Trust Election implications
  • Revision of Trust Deeds, including Guardian or Appointor
  • Impact on Business Real Property
  • Superannuation and CGT asset rollovers available
  • Ethical issues; and
  • Recent case law.
