This on demand webinar allows you to learn in your own time at your own pace and provides you with 1.5 CPD hours.

Out of a very simple policy – that no tax should be payable on the disposal of one’s own home – emerges arguably one of the most complex set of provisions in the income tax legislation. And when you consider that one’s home is typically their largest asset, the importance of having a strong understanding of the rules becomes clear.

With this in mind, we will cover the following:

  • the definition of main residence, including the two hectare rule
  • the rules that extend the exemption, including the absence rule
  • rules that limit the exemption, such as using the house to generate assessable income
  • calculating the gain in circumstances where a full exemption is not available

We will also look at the application of the above rules to real-life scenarios such as:

  • Foreign resident selling their Australian property
  • Demolishing and rebuilding
  • Deceased estates
  • Subdividing and selling off
