Essential tax developments

Things don’t tend to stay the same for very long in the world of tax. In this session we bring you up to date with the latest developments that are likely to impact on your individual and small to medium business clients. 

We take a look at the tax issues that can arise when someone’s main residence is held in a trust and what needs to be done to show that the main residence exemption is available. We also work through the new similar business test that can make it easier for some companies to deduct tax losses, the ATO’s expanded safe harbour concession for inherited property and a recent case which looks at the employee / contractor distinction.

Death, Divorce & SMSFs

Dealing with death and divorce in a Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) can be tricky - Family Court Orders, acrimony, disputes over valuations, competing and conflicting interests, all come into play. Getting the process right in each scenario is essential to ensure fund compliance and to protect your practice.

This session demonstrates how to deal with death and divorce in an SMSF with a detailed review of:

  • How to deal with a member’s benefits on death
  • Essential steps to process superannuation splits in a marriage break down
  • Capital gains tax relief on marriage breakdown
  • Strategies to protect you, as the accountant, when a member dies or commences divorce proceedings

ATO risk focus: Individual and small business taxpayers

The ATO has clearly switched its focus to individuals and small business taxpayers after concentrating on tax issues for multinationals and large corporate groups for a few years. Through its random audit process the ATO has identified a number of common problem areas which are likely to be the focus of compliance action over the coming years.

This session looks at the high risk areas for clients, including the most common mistakes being picked up for rental property owners. We also look at exactly what needs to be done to comply with the TFN withholding and reporting rules for closely held trusts.
