Recorded Webinar: Primary Production Land – Maximising the Duties and Land Tax Exemptions and Concessions (Qld, Vic & NSW)


9th April 2019

Duration:  approx. 2 hours

With more and more rural areas coming within metropolitan zoning, there are increasing restrictions on satisfying primary production land exemptions and concessions for duty and land tax purposes. These issues are further exacerbated when owners seek to explore property development or property speculation options while maintaining current use of primary production land. This session provides an in-depth exploration of:

  • Primary production land tests for land tax exemption outside metropolitan/urban areas:

    • when is primary production the dominant/primary use of land

    • industry specific issues – forestry, solar, wind and carbon farming

  • Primary production land tests for land tax exemption within urban/metropolitan areas:

    • when is a trust carrying on a business of primary production on a substantially full-time basis?

  • Duty exemptions for transfer of primary production businesses and assets:

    • succession planning for primary production businesses

  • Case update:

    • Banting (as Executor of the Estate of the Late K C Banting) v Chief Commissioner of State Revenue [2018] NSWCATAD 38

    • Constable v Chief Commissioner of State Revenue [2018] NSWCATAD 94
