Taxation and Business News
Important changes to withholding tax rules if you are buying or selling a property after 1 July 2016
Taxpayers (including individuals) who purchase certain Australian property from foreign resident vendors after 1 July 2016 will potentially be subject to a new 10% withholding obligation.
Summary of the changes
If you are selling a property (including your home) and the expected sale proceeds are more than $2 million, you will need to apply for a clearance certificate from the ATO and give it to the purchaser to ensure no funds are withheld from the sale proceeds.
If you are buying a property (including a home) and the purchase price is more than $2 million then you need to obtain a clearance certificate from the vendor. If you don't obtain a clearance certificate by settlement then you (the purchaser) will have a withholding tax obligation.
