Recorded Webinar: Division 7A: Complexity in Practice


1st February 2019

Duration:  approx. 1 hour

Division 7A remains one of the most challenging areas of income tax law. This practical session assumes you know the basics, and instead focuses on some of the trickier issues which give Division 7A its well-deserved reputation. It will examine practical case studies in the following areas:

  • Unitization arrangements and Div. 7A
  • Operation of s 109 RB - ATO discretion for honest mistake or inadvertent omission
  • Divorce, splitting the marital assets and Div 7A
  • Division 7A application to foreign companies
  • Division 7A and liquidation - shareholders taking money out before liquidation
  • Treatment of private assets, such as holiday homes, sitting in a private company
