2021 has been, even more so than 2020, the year of working from home for so many of us – but what are the tax implications of using your home as a place of business? Turn to page 3 of our October newsletter to find out.

On the subject of homes, we also cover off what happens when multiple children inherit multiple rental properties – and how to solve the issue of co-owning a property with others. We’ve also got two articles on superannuation – our leading story examines the implications of compensation payments for super fund trustees, while on page 6 we outline the process for SMSFs having to use SuperStream from 1 October for certain contributions and rollovers.

Finally, October means that it’s almost that time of year again – Christmas, as your local supermarket will no doubt be reminding you soon – and our final story looks at the tax treatment of gifts and events in the workplace context.

This issue contains the following articles: Compensation payments: Avoiding contribution issues; Home as a place of business during COVID: CGT implications; Inheriting rental properties jointly: A dilemma?; SuperStream deadline fast approaching; and Christmas and the Taxman.
