Beware the ATO’s Hit List
on Deductions!

Tax & Accounting


In a recent speech the Commissioner indicated that the ATO has serious concerns about some common deduction items claimed by individual taxpayers and that these areas would be subject to additional ATO scrutiny. Recent cases and ATO rulings also suggest that deductions commonly claimed by individuals will continue to be examined closely to ensure that taxpayers are complying with the tax law.

This session looks at the ATO’s list of target areas and the things that will attract more attention from the ATO for individuals and small business taxpayers. We also look at the practical steps that clients can take to minimise their exposure and protect their position.

 


Don’t Lose Company Losses!

Tax & Accounting


The Government is changing the rules to make it easier for companies to access and claim prior year losses. This session takes you through the proposed new 'Similar Business Test' and explores the scenarios where the rules will provide more flexibility for companies with losses.

We also work through the existing company tax loss rules highlighting the risk areas that often catch practitioners and clients out - and where there might be unexpected outcomes, including the impact of death or relationship breakdowns on passing the continuity of ownership test and the impact the PSI rules can have on access to tax losses.
