1 July 2016 sees new CGT withholding rules that have a broad application beyond the traditional buying and selling of real estate. They also impact across a wide range of common transactions undertaken by your clients, including:

  • family law settlements;
  • changes of trustees; and
  • the transfer of property into SMSFs.

For example, a spouse receiving property under a family law settlement or a trustee retiring and transferring property to a new trustee 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 webinar we will look at:

  • what assets and transactions are affected;
  • how these changes may affect the way we advise our clients; and
  • strategies to resolve most issues.

Have you considered the impact on your clients?
