Taxation of Property Transactions in New Zealand is a commentary written by prominent tax barrister Pam Davidson. It takes a thoughtful yet practical approach to the analysis of the tax law related to both real property and personal property transactions, looking at the issues that arise out of the relevant provisions in the Income Tax Act 2007 and the case law that has grown around them.
The author traverses all the various taxation provisions and explains how and when they operate and how they are interrelated, using examples from case law and Departmental publications. Complex tax concepts are explained succinctly but without sacrificing accuracy or clarity, assisted by practical examples and diagrams. Property lawyers, tax professionals, accountants, and anyone with an interest in the taxation of property transactions can find an answer to their question with ease.
With the significant recent changes in this area of law, including the bright-line test, this commentary can provide the peace of mind that comes with an understanding of relevant changes and their affects on your firm, business and clients.
