Date: Wednesday 27th September 2017

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

GST is a significant concern for property developers.  This session looks the best structures for GST purposes, when a property will be treated as a going concern and how to apply the margin scheme.  It includes:

  • What is the best structure for GST purposes and what is the registration threshold?
  • 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
