Taxation of Subdivisions and Developments 2020 - 3 September 2020 (On Demand)


This highly practical webinar examines when subdivisions are subject to income tax (including an examination of IRD’s new interpretation statement on what constitutes “minor work”) and the key tax issues arising for dealers, developers and builders (and associated persons). Extensive use of case studies will illustrate the application of these principles.
