Special Tax & Superannuation Topics 2023-24 - Navigating ATO focus areas - Part 1

While a taxpayer's main residence is generally exempt from CGT, it’s important to note that if it has been utilised to generate income, CGT may be applicable. The ATO will be cracking down on undisclosed gains from asset sales and taxpayers should not assume that such transactions will go unnoticed. This paper will explore common scenarios that may jeapardise the main residence exemption.

On successful completion of this topic, participants will be able to identify common activities that jeapardise the main residence exemption, including:
  • Airbnb
  • Business from the main residence & working from home
  • Subdividing land which contains the main residence
  • Switching between properties
  • Living and working overseas
