Over the past few years, the government has increasingly moved to tax non-residents on capital gains differently to Australian residents. Whether your client is a non-resident investing in Australia or an expat leaving the country for a period overseas, there can be significant CGT costs imposed.
This webinar looks at all the CGT issues that those arriving in Australia from overseas, leaving Australia permanently or temporarily and investing in Australia from abroad need to know. Topics to be covered include:
• A brief overview of the residency rules
• How non-residents are taxed on gains
• CGT and new arrivals in Australia
• CGT and temporary residents
• Taxable Australian Property and the impact on CGT
• CGT events upon leaving Australia
• The main residence exemption for non-residents and expats
• Non-residents and the CGT discount
• Foreign resident CGT withholding
Webinar Learning Outcomes:
Attendees can expect to complete the webinar with a detailed understanding of the way CGT can apply to non-residents, temporary residents and new arrivals, together with practical tips on how clients can structure their affairs to minimise the impact of the tax.
Ideally suited to those who deal on a day to day basis with the tax affairs of individuals who have recently arrived, are here temporarily, are planning to leave or are overseas but with exposure to Australian assets. This might include:
• Tax agents
• Migration agents
• Real estate professionals
• Financial advisers.
