Important Changes to Vacant Land Rules - Webinar

Important Changes to Vacant Land Rules - Webinar

Important changes have been enacted to the tax law concerning the ability of a taxpayer to claim a deduction in relation to “vacant land” (as defined). These changes apply to losses or outgoings incurred on or after 1 July 2019, no matter when the land was acquired. The changes affect your clients now.

The webinar will deal with:

  • Why the changes were introduced
  • What types of taxpayers will be affected
  • Why “vacant land” doesn’t only mean land that is vacant
  • Important exceptions to the operation of the law including bushfire implications
  • What to watch out for
  • Key issues of what constitutes a substantial and permanent structure
  • Examples of how the law operates
