Recorded Webinar: Unimproved Land GST Concessions: Good in Theory, Bad in Practice

Thursday 19th May 2016

Duration: approx 2 hours

About the webinar

The unimproved land concessions can mean big savings; in some cases it can result in either nil or a reduced amount of GST payable. However, the continuing disputes between the ATO and various Government entities demonstrate the difficulties in applying the concessions. This presentation will cover:

  • The background: the concept of “notional” GST
  • “Unimproved land” for GST purposes – what does this mean?
  • The margin scheme and unimproved land
  • GSTR 2006/6 – applying and interpreting correctly
  • Supply of unimproved land pre and post 1 July 2012 – what do you need to know?
  • Local government and notional tax
  • The Part IVC problem – no dispute resolution pathway
  • Unimproved land disputes and the ADR process

Who should attend

This webinar is suitable for accountants and lawyers advising on GST – Australia wide. This webinar is for practitioners with some knowledge in this area and looking to improve their knowledge.
