Recorded Webinar: Damocles Sword: The Future of Division 7A


14th February 2020
Duration:  approx. 1 hour

You've spoken and we've listened. From 1/8/19 we've structured most of our webinars to run for one hour - the ideal length for staff training sessions. And, for most of you the webinars will be held at lunchtime - the ideal time for attending live webinars.
With the rewrite of Division 7A still looming, taxpayers and advisers will need to rethink their approach to taxation of private groups. This session considers what the new world may bring, including:

  • Gazing into the crystal ball – where is Division 7A likely to go?

  • Transitional arrangements for existing arrangements

  • What are the best tax strategies following proposed changes?

  • Should taxpayers be moving away from Division 7A loans?

  • Managing financing issues going forward:

    • Choosing between internal or external financing

    • Which entity should be banker in the group? Issues where group includes base rate entities and non-base rate entities.

    • What is the impact on active asset tests where banker is part of the group?
