Tax Issues for Landlords and Tenants - 28 July 2020 (On Demand)


This highly practical webinar examines tax issues facing landlords and tenants in the light of Covid-19. Key issues addressed include the deductibility of expenses (including legal fees, interest and other borrowing costs, repairs and maintenance and low-value assets), depreciation changes and maximising depreciation claims, the tax treatment of “free fit-outs” and the tax treatment of lease inducements and lease surrender payments. Case studies will illustrate the application of these issues.
