 Recorded Webinar: Traps in GST-free Supplies of a Going Concern - And How to Avoid Them

Date:  Tuesday 10th May 2022 Duration:  approx. 1 hour


Selling a business as a GST-free going concern is now regarded as standard operating practice, which can give rise to complacency and mistakes. Using a series of checklists, this session explores the types of issues that can be overlooked by advisers and taxpayers entering into supply of a going concern, including: 

  • Whether you should supply something as a going concern (i.e. benefits/risks for vendor vs. purchaser);
  • Whether you actually can supply something as a going concern;
  • Going concern transactions involving multiple vendors and a single purchaser, and vice versa;
  • Selling property that is fully or partly tenanted as a going concern;
  • Drafting going concern provisions to suit your client;
  • Interaction with other provisions in the GST Act (including GST-free farmland, increasing adjustments under Division 135, etc).
