About the webinar

Business purchases involving land may come under review by FIRB. So ensuring compliance with recent changes is a must for advisers. This webinar examines the key changes you need to be up on:

  • The new FIRB regulations – who is a foreign person under the rules?
  • Client identification on resident status – strict rules apply
  • What is a clearance certificate and when is it required?
  • Investments in corporations and trusts that own land – how the FIRB rules apply
  • Acquisition of a business owning land and how to remain compliant
  • FIRB exemptions and how they apply
  • Penalties and offences for non-compliance
  • Understanding the extent of liability – the risk to advisers
  • Case study – Check list to remain compliant

CPD Certificate

Live webinar delegates will receive a CPD certificate for attendance at this webinar.  Lawyers can claim up to 2 CPD [CLE] units/points – substantive law.  This webinar has been designed to run for 2 hours, however, webinar lengths can vary depending on the level of questions and discussion, and the minimum length of the webinar is 1.5 hours.

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
