Will selling to my LAQC trigger tax issues?
Question from Ron updated on 1st February 2011:
Our expert Mark Withers responded:
Yes, the sale of the property to the LAQC will trigger tax issues associated with its disposal in your tax return. This will include a depreciation recovery assuming the market value disposal of the building is in excess of its depreciated book value. Note that because the transfer is between associated parties depreciation in the new company is limited to the same rate and cost base that was used by you as an individual.
