Emerging Tax Issues and their Implications

Tax & Accounting


In recent years we have seen significant developments in areas like the sharing economy, crowdfunding and cryptocurrency. Clients are often misinformed or confused about how the tax system applies to transactions in these areas.

 

This session looks at the tax treatment of dealings in cryptocurrency including situations where clients might be able to argue that gains they make are tax-free. We also look at common issues arising from the sharing economy such as ride-sourcing, and situations where clients are letting out some or all of their home through platforms such as Airbnb. We also run through the tax and GST treatment of various crowdfunding arrangements.

 

 


FBT in Practice

Tax & Accounting

 

The essential annual update on all the key FBT developments over the last 12 months including recent ATO guidelines on exempt motor vehicles.

 

We also focus on common FBT problem areas to ensure that you and your team are set for the upcoming FBT compliance season. This includes looking at the interaction between the FBT and GST systems, the reportable fringe benefit rules, and other areas where clients and practitioners often make mistakes, especially where salary packaging arrangements are involved.

Post 1 July 2017 Superannuation Contributions: the Issues

Superannuation

The 1 July 2017 super reform measures introduced further restrictions and limitations on superannuation contributions. This session provides a detailed summary of what needs to be considered when clients want to make contributions. We cover:

  • Contribution caps
  • How the bring forward rules operate post 1 July 2017
  • The interaction between a members "Total Super Balance" and their eligibility to make super contributions
  • Downsizer super contributions
  • First Home Super Saver Scheme
