  1. The treatment of “notional GST” in the Pt IVC framework, and the application of the GST margin scheme to the transfer of several freehold interests in land to a third party as part of a single contract, in Landcom v Commissioner of Taxation [2022] FCA 510; and
  1. Determining whether a worker is an “employee” at common law (applying recent High Court authority on the distinction between employee and independent contractor) or on the extended definition, for the purposes of the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (Cth) in JMC Pty Limited v Commissioner of Taxation [2022] FCA 750.
