Recorded Webinar: Tax and GST Strategies for Small Scale Property Developments

Friday 10th February 2017

Duration:  approx. 1.5 hours

About the webinar

Tax planning for minimization of tax on your development requires you to take different factors into account. This session steps you through these factors when structuring your development from a tax perspective:

  • How you can stay out of the income tax net:
    • staying in the CGT net
    • how to develop without carrying on a business
    • mere realisation vs profit-making undertaking or scheme
    • private rulings
  • Do you use companies for development and trusts to hold capital assets?
  • Avoiding a “mixed purpose” with regard to end product
  • Joint venture developments using a company and a trust under one control:
    • gaining CGT exemption
    • discount CGT on disposal of property
  • Small to medium developments – using a fresh entity for each development
  • Pre-CGT property - doing a deal with developer
