About the Webinar

Intentions can be an extremely important aspect of determining the tax treatment of a transaction. They can also be quite difficult to support when required and they can change over time. To comply with GST requirements, practitioners may find themselves having to ask a client what their intention is for a property at a particular point of time. This session explores when the question may need to be asked and the GST implications of the answer, including:

  • GST implications of purchasing property as a GST-free supply of a going concern with intention of using for commercial leasing and:
    • subsequently using for private or input taxed use
    • subsequently using for land development
  • Farmland acquired under the GST-free farmland exemption with intention of using for farming, subsequently used for property development
  • Is the test for residential premises determined by intended use or the characteristics of the property? (Sunchen Pty Ltd v C of T [2010] FCAFC 138)
  • How adjustment periods can apply when there is a change of intention of use for newly constructed residential property:
    • intended for sale and subsequently rented out (GSTR 2009/4)
    • intended for renting and subsequently sold
  • The GST implications if there are mixed intentions for a property at a point in time (ie. sell or rent)
  • Tips to support intention of a property’s use, including:
    • entities that own a number of properties with different intended purposes (ie. one or more for investment and others to sell)
    • a third party’s intention to use a property for a farming business when using the GST-free farmland exemption
    • how a change of intended use impacts the reporting of a property in the financial statements
  • Practical examples
