Webinar Series,Law Other,The Lawyers’ Guide to Capital Gains Tax - a series of 6 video webinars
.   .

Capital gains tax arises in many business transactions and it’s an unwelcome and unloved impost that your clients have to bear.  All lawyers who advise on business restructures or sales need to know about CGT rollovers and the CGT small business concessions.  Property lawyers need to understand the limits of the main residence exemption to ensure no tax is payable when the family home is sold.

If you advise businesses which are closely held you will inevitably have to advise on business sales and restructures.  To get the best outcome, you’ll need a working knowledge of the use of CGT rollovers to ensure that you minimise CGT on the restructure.  If the business is small, the CGT small business concessions can also be used in the restructure.   Those concessions are also essential to ensure that small business owners take home up to 100% of the purchase price without paying any CGT.

This video webinar series includes the following components:

  • Online access to the video webinar programs covering the subjects listed below (and explained in more detail in the accompanying brochure)
