Latest Developments in Tax Residency


How recent law changes and case decisions linked to tax residency will impact your individual clients

Over the last few months, a number of significant tax cases regarding tax residency and significant law changes have impacted on how we advise individuals who are either coming to Australia or leaving Australia. This webinar looks in detail at the recent developments. Amongst the issues to be covered are the following:

  • An overview of current tax residency rules, including controversial ATO interpretations
  • Does the Harding case make it easier for individuals leaving Australia, particularly those going on secondment overseas, to claim non-residency status?
  • What does the Addy case mean for working-holidaymakers? Is there a windfall to be claimed by some?
  • What do recent changes to the main residence exemption mean for departing Australians?
  • Is it possible to have no tax residency at all to avoid Australian tax?
  • What planning needs to be done for taxpayers affected by these developments to get the best tax outcomes?

Webinar Learning Outcomes:

Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of how the latest case law and legislative developments will impact their individual clients, how to advise clients and what planning can be done now or in the future to get the best tax outcomes for clients.

Suited to:

Ideal for tax practitioners, accountants and other professionals with individual clients who are:

  • Working holidaymakers
  • Current or prospective expatriates and non-residents
  • Any other individual clients with uncertain tax residency status
