DO YOU HOLD INVESTMENTS IN AUSTRALIA? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IMPORTANT CHANGES AFFECTING AUSTRALIANS BASED IN THAILAND WITH INVESTMENTS BACK HOME.

The briefing will cover key issues that affect Australians based in Thailand with investment interests back in Australia. Issues such as, are you currently renting out your home in Australia or have investment rental properties there? Are you aware of your obligations in lodging an Australian Income Tax Return if you do? How will the new legislation introduced on 1 July 2017 relating to deductibility of travel expenses to Australia to inspect your properties impact you?  What are the current Capital Gains Tax (CGT) implications on selling your home or investment property in Australia?  If implemented how will the proposed legislation of removing the CGT main residence exemption for all foreign residents from 9 May 2017 affect you? What happens with the “ 6 year rule”?  The significant negative impact on expatriates in terms of their exposure to CGT on the proposed changes will be explained. Will there be transitional arrangements for the proposed changes? The briefing will also cover the taxation benefits of making tax deductible superannuation contributions in Australia and will also look at the benefits and tax implications of buying and selling listed securities and managed funds in Australia.

The presentation will be conducted by Stephen French, Director at MMT Accountants & Advisors and Stephen Caswell from Stephen Caswell Consulting.
