01 Division 7A refresher

12-1PM AEST Thursday June 20th, 2024.

Division 7A might have been around for over 20 years but it continues to find new ways of being complicated. This session will cover some practical issues just in time for 30 June, including what advisors need to advise their clients, making minimum yearly repayments using set-off arrangements, and the Commissioner’s discretion under section 109RB including corrective action requirements

02 What structure should you use?

12-1PM AEST Thursday July 18th, 2024.

There's a lot to consider when starting a business. One crucial aspect is to take the time to consider which structure to adopt, and the tax implications while the business is operating as well as the potential implications on exit. In this session we consider different structures and their advantages and disadvantages.

03 Restructuring (including CGT rollovers)

12-1PM AEST Thursday 15th, August, 2024.

What happens if you have set up, or inherited, a structure which is no longer fit for purpose? Tax implications when restructuring may be costly. In this session we will consider the issues arising when restructuring and mitigating the potential tax costs, particularly the use of CGT rollovers.

04 SBCGT concessions - practical issues

12-1PM AEST Thursday 19th September, 2024.

The small business CGT concessions are celebrating their 25th birthday this year. Crack open the bubbly, but don't drink it too fast - unfortunately, navigating these rules has not gotten any easier! In this session we will look at some of the practical issues to consider when applying these concessions.

05 Payroll and employment taxes and super - state of play

12-1PM AEST Thursday 17th October, 2024.

The stakes for employers getting employment related taxes right is at an all time high. In this session we will cover topical issues in this area, including payroll tax and grouping, employee vs contractor, superannuation and SGC, and other related issues.

06 Expanding overseas?

12-1PM AEST Thursday 21st November, 2024.

The Australian business is going well, and we're now looking to expand overseas. The Australian tax system is complicated enough, but adding another jurisdiction increases the complexity significantly. In this session we look at some of the tax issues to consider when expanding operations into another country.

07 Year in review - 2024 through a tax lens. Or, Merry TAXmas!

And it’s a wrap. With the year drawing to a close , our last session for 2024 will look back over the big topics, cases and announcements. We will also discuss what advisors should be thinking about heading into 2025.
