Join us for this 1.5-day event dedicated to all that is Division 7A and Trusts!
Day One – Division 7A
As we await the release of draft legislation, practitioners continue to grapple with what the ‘new’ Division 7A rules might look like, The COVID-19 pandemic has further added to the uncertainty surrounding Division 7A as businesses and the economy have never looked so different in such a short period of time.
This event will provide an update of the current state of play of Division 7A, consider the ways COVID-19 has impacted on taxpayers’ abilities to comply and use practical examples and case studies to examine key Division 7A issues.
Day Two - Trusts
For the last five years, Section 100A has been under review, and the ATO has had a Compliance focus on both trusts and 100A. Trusts are wonderful structures that have evolved since they first became used as structures in the 20th century, however, they may no longer be appropriate in some situations. This program will provide delegates with an in-depth understanding of the key developments in Trusts.

• The application of the CGT rules upon death, including rollovers and other concessions (e.g. main residence and availability of the small business CGT concessions);• Testamentary trusts as a flexible estate planning and succession tool, and the tax traps and tips in structuring; and• Dealing with the impacts of the non-residency of the deceased or beneficiary.

Can't attend the whole event? Single day registrations available (not available on-line).Day One – It’s all about TrustsIt is expected that by 2022 there will be over 1,000,000 trusts in operation in Australia. While the number of trusts continues to grow, the manner in which they are taxed has become even more complex. The establishment and administration of trusts also raises numerous practical and compliance issues.
This event is aimed at tax practitioners who advise trustees, beneficiaries and others involved in operating trusts and who wish to keep up to date with recent developments relevant to the taxation of trusts. The event will help you answer some key questions, including:- What is the future of trusts under the current Coalition government?- What should I do if my client’s trust is reaching its vesting date?- How are trusts impacted by Division 7A and how is this likely to change? - What do I need to know about section 99B and 100A?- What complications can arise from family trust elections and interposed entity elections?- How will the recent Duties Act changes impact trusts?- What has changed in determining the residency of trusts? Day Two – Division 7AIt’s been over 20 years since Division 7A was enacted, and, despite the passage of time, it remains one of the most complex and challenging provisions in our taxation legislation. Whilst we know reform is on the horizon, there is still uncertainty as to exactly what the future holds for Division 7A. The wait does however present tax practitioners with the opportunity to plan for the future and deal with any Division 7A issues placed on the backburner.
This event will examine the key Division 7A issues faced by tax practitioners including:- Getting the business structure right at the outset and how to restructure out of Division 7A;- Dealing with inherited and obscure Division 7A issues;- What tax practitioners should watch out for;- How to deal with pre-97, or pre-09 loans; and- Topical Division 7A issues for the ATO.
May Morning Tax Club
Session: 7.30am - 9.00amTopic: Working with trust deeds and resolutions
30 June is just around the corner, and drafting of trust resolutions will need to occur soon. While often doing what was done last year will produce the desired result, when something unusual has occurred, some thought needs to go into drafting resolutions and advising on their effect. This session will look at some common cases, but also some unusual matters such as: paying out the cash boost amounts from trusts, dealing with Jobseeker amounts, what occurs where the small business CGT concessions are being applied, and what to do when you are distributing offshore.
