Land partitioning is not the same as subdivision and refers to land held jointly transferred to one or more co-owners. This session highlights some red flags on state tax liability on land partitioning, including:

  • The nature of land partition and its duty consequences
  • Determining dutiable value of partitioned land
  • Who is liable to pay duty?
  • No capital behind them – developments with neighbours
  • Anti-avoidance requirements pertaining to partitioning
  • Consolidated lots and partitioning – what is the duty position?
  • Operation of apparent purchaser provisions in legislation

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).
