GST for property lawyers

West Garbutt Principal Lyndon Garbutt recently co-presented with Steven Fogarty of the ATO at the Queensland Law Society Property Law Conference in Brisbane on the topic of getting GST right for property transactions.

  • how to manage GST risk
  • how to avoid common traps associated with documenting GST clauses
  • common issues encountered in claiming the going concern exemption and margin scheme concession
  • obligations on purchasers relating to GST withholdings.
