Inside this month Michael Carruthers (Tax Director, Knowledge Shop), Matthew Tse (Tax Adviser, Knowledge Sop), and Lisa Armstrong bring you:

  • The current tax status of COVD-19 payments and grants
  • New guidance from the ATO on deductions for expenses relating to holding vacant land.
  • The case that looks at whether a taxpayer

    was carrying on a business of renting property (Allen v FC of T [2021] AATA 2768 and Allzams Trust v FC of T [2021] AATA 2767). We get that question a lot on Knowledge Shop’s help desk!
