The treatment of GST on property sales can involve complexities that include the margin scheme and GST free provisions. Disputes can arise in the event of underpaid GST, including who is liable, after the transaction has undergone a closer look from the ATO. This session looks at the contract clauses that affect GST to assist in ensuring the transacting parties are fully informed of the potential GST outcomes, including:

  • The GST risks for:
  • The vendor
  • The purchaser
  • The potential for Division 135 adjustments
  • How to determine which party is liable for a GST underpayment when:
  • GST free going concern requirements are not met
  • GST free farmland requirements are not met
  • When is it prudent to apply for a private binding ruling on the GST treatment of a property transaction?
  • How much weight can be given to relying on the ATO’s property decision tool?
  • What do first time property developers need to be aware of?
  • What are the elements of a good GST clause in a contract?
  • War stories

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).
