National Resources Tax Conference


Andrew Broadfoot QC spoke recently at the National Resources Tax Conference in Perth, on restructuring corporate arrangements that may fall foul of new or foreshadowed legislative changes. The issue is whether restructuring to avoid new anti-avoidance provisions can result in taxpayers infringing the general anti-avoidance provisions in Part IVA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936. A copy of the technical paper and the slides used during the presentation can be downloaded for those who may be interested.

Note that PCG 2018/D4 which is covered in the paper has now been released as 2018/7 which is available on the ATO website.
