Family Law Tax Intensive

The division and disposal of real property and other assets, and the distribution of income, as part of family law proceedings or other arrangements can result in adverse taxation implications if due care is not taken. Every well rounded family lawyer needs this knowledge in their toolkit.

Although family lawyers are not financial advisers and cannot provide financial advice to clients, settlement agreements must still be drafted in a way that best minimises tax implications for all parties.

It is imperative that family lawyers have a basic grasp of the essential taxation concepts required, in order to negotiate the best outcome, while minimising financial risk for their clients. This may also minimise risk of a claim of failing to recognise the appropriate financial triggers.

Tax Tips and Traps for Family Lawyers 

Common tax issues faced by family lawyers including:

  • CGT;
  • Transfers of assets;
  • Spousal maintenance;
  • How to best structure such arrangements for the advantage of all parties involved;
  • And other common financial aspects of family law.

Tax Issues in Family Trusts 

For every ‘straightforward’ family law property settlement, there is a settlement which can involve a complex web of family trusts giving rise to significant taxation issues.

This session will address the due diligence that family lawyers must be aware of when advising a client on tax implications that can arise from family trusts, including:

  • Different Trust types;
  • Rollover relief;
  • CGT;
  • Stamp Duty; and
  • Trusts tax triggers.
