Recorded Webinar: GST Liability in Property Developments

Wednesday 26th October 2016

Duration: approx 2 hours

About the webinar

There is a mismatch between property law and GST liability. This session seeks to deal with this and unravel the complex web of GST liability in property developments:

  • What is the best structure for GST purposes?
  • Characterisation – partnership, JV or commercial arrangement?
  • A mere realisation of a capital asset or not? – GST consequences for registration
  • When is an entity carrying on an “enterprise?”
  • GST issues for small developments – capital transactions amounting to an “enterprise”
  • Where a “mere realisation” could amount to a taxable supply for GST purposes
  • The supply of land under a development - when is it a going concern and GST free
  • The use of the margin scheme in property developments – agreeing in the contract
  • Ensuring no GST is payable on pre-existing residential developments
  • When private developers might not need to register for GST
  • When it may be necessary to get a private ruling
  • GST complications when selling land to a partnership
  • Case studies:
    • introducing a new party to the joint venture – the GST implications
    • disposal of an interest in a partnership for tax purposes
