Tax Bar Association Dinner

An ATO registry of trusts and trust assets?

The Tax Bar Association
9Oct

 
In Europe, including in the United Kingdom, governments have established registries to record who is beneficially entitled to trust assets.  There is likely to be pressure for Australia to adopt these measures in the near future.  How would a trust registry work?  What are the risks for trustees and beneficiaries if such a register is established?  Are there any steps trustees should be considering in advance of the establishment of such a registry?  Dr Glover will consider these and other issues in relation to the establishment of a trust registry.

The Magic of Sandini: Obtaining Tax Certainty via Declaratory Relief

20Sep

In Sandini Pty Ltd v Commissioner of Taxation [2017] FCA 287 (currently on appeal) the Federal Court granted a declaration that the taxpayer was entitled to the benefit of a CGT rollover under Subdivision 126-A of the ITAA 1997 in respect of a transfer of assets in compliance with orders of the Family Court of Australia. While the decision is currently on appeal, the avenue of declaratory relief – which has been much discussed but little used - may offer a suitable path for taxpayers in many cases.

Cross border lending after Chevron

22May

The Full Federal Court in Chevron Australia Holdings Pty Ltd v Commissioner of Taxation [2017] FCAFC 62 has confirmed several issues arising from the application of Australian transfer pricing laws to cross-border lending, the most significant of these being the basis on which a hypothetical arm’s-length transaction is constructed.
