FBT: Getting it right

Tax & Accounting

This session will ensure that you and your team are set for the upcoming FBT compliance season. We cover some of the common pitfalls and problem areas in the FBT system and the issues that can sometimes result in an unexpected FBT liability for clients. 


Specifically, we look at the complexities around employee contributions, including when and how this can be done through journal entries as well as problems that can arise when clients want to apply the ‘otherwise deductible’ rule.  


We also work through FBT planning opportunities that still exist and what needs to be done to ensure the best outcome for businesses and their employees.

SMSF: Back to basics



This session provides a refresh on the important superannuation problem areas that still trip practitioners up. We highlight the common mistakes being made and how to avoid them with an in-depth look at: 


  • When a pension starts and stops and how this impacts minimum pension calculations 
  • Recent sole purpose cases: the implications to in-house assets   
  • Segregation and its use for investment purposes 
  • Calculating superannuation guarantee and superannuation guarantee charge

Foreign income tax-offsets in practice

Tax & Accounting

It is increasingly common for practitioners to deal with clients who have received income from overseas. It is also common for those clients to be taxed in Australia as well as another country. In this case, clients will be keen to ensure that they are not paying more tax that they need to on a worldwide basis. This is where the foreign income tax-offset rules need to be considered. 


This session covers the issues that need to be considered to ensure clients don’t pay too much tax. Its important for practitioners to have a solid understanding of these rules because they don’t always operate the way that clients expect, especially when dealing with capital gains.
