 Recorded Webinar: Division 7A: Planning Strategies to Implement Now

Date: Thursday 22nd July 2021
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

The Government announcement that the proposed start date of the changes to Division 7A would be further deferred signals that no change to the rules is likely in the near future. In the interim, advisers are still required to comply with the existing rules. This session examines some of the areas of the existing law which are still causing concern, the recent rulings and announcements issued by the ATO, and the strategies you should be implementing now. It covers:

  • Unpacking the interposed entity rules (section 109T of the ITAA 1936, TD 2018/13)
  • UPEs and corporate beneficiaries (Subdivision EA)
  • Division 7A and COVID-19 (Deferral of loan repayments for 12 months under section 109RD - ATO Guide QC 62915)
  • Calculating distributable surplus (section 109Y)
  • Interaction of Division 7A and other provisions of the tax law (e.g. Div 7A and the small business restructure rollover)
  • Dealing with UPEs and subtrusts
