Taxation of Subdivisions 2023 - 21 September 2023 (On Demand)


This highly practical webinar examines when subdivision and development schemes are subject to income tax, and includes a detailed examination of Inland Revenue’s guidance on what constitutes “minor work”, “significant expenditure”, and the income tax treatment of retained land.
