Tax, Share Trading & Investing Webinar

The practical management of the key tax issues for share transactions

Revenue or capital account
Protecting franking credits
CGT calculations and concessions

A Live Instructor Led Webinar

Many of our clients hold shares in companies, either as part of an investment portfolio or in connection with a trading activity. Either way, there are a range of tax issues that need to be considered when clients receive shares, sell shares, or receive dividends relating to shares.

The Tax, Share Trading & Investing Webinar looks at how to determine whether share transactions should be recognised on revenue or capital account and when clients are carrying on a share trading business. We explore some of the specific issues that need to be considered when clients are carrying on a share trading activity including the trading stock rules and non-commercial loss provisions.

We look at the common issues faced by investors, including how to determine whether franking credits attached to dividends can be claimed, how to deal with dividend reinvestment and bonus share arrangements, and the key issues to consider when performing CGT calculations.

This is essential training for every accountant.
