One in three Australian marriages ends in divorce. During the course of an average marriage, there is plenty of time for couples to accumulate a substantial pool of assets, including the family home, investment properties and superannuation, all of which will need to be divided between the spouses if they go their separate ways.
In the third of four webinars based on his recent book “Life and Taxes: A Look at Life Through Tax”, Mark Chapman considers the tax implications of relationship breakdown.
With reference to legislation, ATO interpretation and practical examples, this webinar will consider such potentially crucial areas as:
• Tax treatment of maintenance payments
• Capital Gains Tax for separating couples, including the impact on the family home
• Transferring assets held within a private company
• Splitting superannuation
• The impact of relationship breakdown on a Self-Managed Super Fund
Webinar Learning Outcomes:
Attendees will obtain a detailed understanding of how tax law affects couples whose relationship has broken down, as well as a detailed practical understanding of how the law applies to many common client situations.
