The Tax and Superannuation Laws Amendment (2015 Measures No. 6) Act 2016, introducing the new foreign resident capital gains tax withholding regime will commence operation from 1 July 2016.

Under the new withholding tax regime, all purchasers of certain Australian assets from ‘foreign residents’ will be required to withhold and remit 10% of the consideration paid to the Commissioner of Taxation.

Our speakers will provide an essential overview of the changes and the practical requirements of obtaining from the Australian Taxation Office clearance certificates and/or vendor declarations and the impact that this will have on the timing and documentation of the relevant transactions affected by the new legislation including the Joint Form General Conditions for the Sale of Land.
