Trust developments, ATO updates and more

The ATO has certainly caused a stir with its guidance on section 100A. In this session we explore the ATO's latest comments in this area and practical issues that clients should be considering in connection with trust distributions. We also look at the ATO's response to the High Court decision in the Carter case and key points that need to be considered before clients seek to disclaim trust distributions. 

We explore the ATO's relaxed approach to the non-commercial loss rules for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 income years and the opportunity for some clients to offset business losses against other income without having to apply to the Commissioner to exercise discretion. We also look at the ATO's updated guidance on when the 'natural love and affection' exception can apply to forgiven debts.

Tax residency essentials

With international borders opening up and clients starting to move between countries on a more regular basis again there will be a renewed focus on the residency status of individual clients.

While an individual's residency status is crucial in determining the types of income or gains that are subject to tax in Australia and the tax rate that applies, this can be a notoriously difficult area.

This session explores how to practically work through each of the four individual residency tests in light of recent court decisions in this area.  We also explore the impact of the temporary resident provisions and how to approach the tie-breaker tests in Australia's double tax agreements.

We explore the key tax issues that need to be considered when a client becomes a resident or ceases to be a resident for tax purposes. We also take a quick look at the proposed residency reforms and where things currently stand in this area.
