Division 7A Latest Developments.


An overview of the current state of play with Division 7A including COVID-19 concessions, proposed fundamental changes and significant cases.

The Division 7A rules are one of the most complex and easily misunderstood areas of tax law and the tax implications for clients that fall foul of the rules can be profound.

Big changes are coming that clients need to understand, case law constantly shifts the goalposts and COVID-19 is causing financial hardship for those affected by the law. This webinar takes a look at all of these to provide a full stock-take on where we are with Division 7A.

During the webinar, you will be guided through the following topics:

  • Overview of the existing Division 7A rules
  • Summary of the proposed changes to Division 7A including a review of new simplified loan rules and status of UPEs, plus latest news on commencement date
  • COVID-19 Div 7A loan repayment concessions
  • What recent cases tell us about the application of Div 7A:
  • The implications of failing to keep proper records
  • How “directors fees” came to be treated as Div 7A loans
  • How a super contribution gave rise to a Div 7A liability
  • When can a shareholder argue that a failure to make a minimum yearly repayment is beyond their control?

Webinar Learning Outcomes:
Participants will gain an up to date understanding of proposed and actual changes to the Division 7A rules, how they will impact clients, what advice needs to be given and what action needs to be taken. Material reflects and clarifies ATO guidance and case law.

Suited to:
