Feb 2020 Tax Round Up - the impact of the main residence exemption amendments

by Knowledge Shop Editor, on 03/02/20 16:42

In the final sitting of Parliament late last year, the Senate passed amendments that prevent non-residents from accessing the Main Residence Exemption.

The controversial new laws apply to CGT events happening from 7.30pm (AEST) on 9 May 2017. While the new rules are ‘black and white’ in their application, they do include a short transitional period (to 30 June 2020) and some limited exceptions. We explore this and more in this month's tax round up.
