Bright-Line Test and RLWT 2023 - 29 June 2023 (On Demand)


This webinar considers a number of issues that arise under the bright-line test and the RLWT rules. Issues arising under the bright-line test include when the 5-year rule for “new build land” will apply, the calculation of the bright-line period where land has been subdivided and in other unusual situations, the application of the main home exclusion where bare land is acquired and the family home is erected on that land, the application of the main home exclusion to trusts, and the circumstances in which rollover relief from the bright-line test applies. Issues arising under the RLWT rules include complications in determining whether a landowner is an offshore person, particularly where the landowner is a trust.
