Death of a Taxpayer – Tax consequences of the transfer of assets on a taxpayer’s death - 30 August 2017 (On Demand)


An individual’s death can trigger onerous and often unexpected tax liabilities. This webinar will provide attendees with a broad understanding of the tax consequences that arise from asset transfers made upon an individual’s death. The webinar will also provide attendees with the ability to ensure that their clients have structured their affairs to minimise the tax impact of their death.

Topics covered will include:

  • An overview of relevant legal concepts including executors, administrators and probate 
  • Income tax consequences of asset transfers on the death of an individual, including when a market value disposal is deemed to arise and when relief is available 
  • GST consequences of asset transfers on death 
  • How death affects shareholder continuity for a company 
  • Tax consequences of receiving an inheritance payment from a New Zealand based estate or an offshore estate 


The death of an individual can have wide-reaching effects on their financial and business interests with flow on taxation consequences. This webinar will provide attendees with a broad understanding of the income tax rules applying to the transfer of assets upon death. More importantly, it will enable attendees to more effectively advise their clients in relation to estate and succession planning and identify any “red flags” with the asset transfers proposed on the death of a client.


  • Accountants of all levels, particularly those advising individuals on estate and succession matters
  • Lawyers advising on wills, trusts, succession and other estate matters
  • Other professionals providing executor, trustee or other estate related services
