How to Transfer Property Out of Family Companies & Trusts

Transferring property from family companies and trusts in Family Law settlements is fraught with a number of potential problems including:

  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Stamp Duty
  • Division 7A
  • GST

The incorrect approach can create both current capital tax tax liabilities and future capital gains tax liabilities.

However the Capital Gains Tax Family Law rollover provisions can provide your clients with great tax planning opportunities that could save both current capital tax and potential future capital gains tax.
