1 July 2016 sees new CGT withholding rules that have a broad application beyond traditional conveyancing files and an impact across a wide range of common transactions, including:

  • family law;
  • commercial; and
  • estates.

For example, a spouse receiving property under a family law settlement or an executor of an estate may have an obligation to pay an amount to the ATO.

Importantly, these withholding provisions do not just apply to the transfer of real estate for value, but also to any transfer of real estate or, in some cases, shares and options.

In this workshop based discussion forum we will look at:

  • what assets and transactions are affected; and
  • how as lawyers we must change the way we conduct our files and protect our clients' interests.
