Property owners subdividing land and selling the subdivided lots is becoming increasingly common as urban sprawl extends towards traditionally rural land.

There is an opportunity for landowners to maximise profits, and the key is locking in the best structure and tax treatment from the start.

In this webinar, we will look at the issues that can arise and ways of solving them. We will discuss:

  • steps to maximise the prospects of making sales on capital account – and things to avoid
  • joint ventures, partnerships and tax law partnerships – getting the structure right between a landowner and developer to avoid unwanted liabilities
  • checking agreements to make sure the basics are in order
  • how the income tax treatment affects the owner's ability to make sales that don't attract GST
  • the GST concept of 'enterprise' – are the sales of subdivided lots subject to GST? And do they have to be?
  • applying the GST margin scheme.

We hope that you are able to join us.
