There’s nothing wrong with sourcing certain business assets through peer-to-peer websites like Gumtree or even a Facebook group. It’s when it comes to substantiating a tax claim that these sorts of transactions can end up being difficult.

The ATO’s rules regarding deductions claimed for work clothing, or for laundering clothes, are fairly straight-forward, but there are a few grey areas that crop up now and then.

We cast an eye over how simplified depreciation works for small business pools, and also look at the new “total superannuation balance” and what it means for your fund.

FBT and the provision of cars to employees continues to cause potholes in the road to smooth tax compliance for businesses. We run over the usual FBT return problem areas. Also, as the “sharing economy” is becoming more prevalent, the ATO has found it necessary to issue some guidance.

A not-uncommon conundrum for many SMSF trustees is what to do when the fund is found to have breached the in-house asset rules. There are also some common misconceptions about these regulations that keep resurfacing.

We also look at tax and dividend income, and run over the options for salary sacrifice arrangements.

Progress Update 3 – Basement Excavation

Construction is well on the way down at Yorkshire Brewery in Collingwood. One crane is up, and there is only a small portion of dirt left to be removed. With the major basement demolition, earthworks and piling completed the basement retention walls are almost finished. Preparation for the level 2 basement slab is underway, with the initial drainage works beginning soon. Once completed, the slab for basement level 1 will be poured and services integrated. With the introduction of a second crane within the next few weeks, from there it is out of the ground and up! The Heritage buildings will be the first to begin due to the significant restoration works needed, and then construction on the three main towers will begin.

Progress Update 2 – Pilings

With demolition works now completed all attention has turned to the construction of the development. The first step is to construct and excavate the basement which covers most of the site. Two piling rigs were floated onto the site to commence the basement permitter piling which involves drilling out 600-700mm bored piers to the depth of the basements and then inserting reinforced steel cages into the hole and then filling with concrete. All bored piers are then finished off with a top capping beam which outlines the extent of the perimeter of basement. Next excavation of the soil and the construction of the basement walls are to be completed.

Progress Update 1 – Demolition

The site offices were set up with all SMA staff relocated to Collingwood. The 71 ton excavator, or Demolition Rig, one of only two in Australia, was then assembled onsite by 2 cranes. Demolition of the silos commenced shortly thereafter taking approximately 6-8 weeks. In total ten silos tubes, or two rows of five, were brought down. Next the remaining stair, as shown in the time-lapse video, had to be demolished manually with hand held concrete saws and then craned down piece by piece. Internal scaffolding was erected inside the Brew tower whilst the attached subsidiary building were removed. This was an arduous process as there was large volumes of asbestos to be removed. Once complete the beautiful and iconic Brew tower was freed up, marking the beginning of its new lease of life. Stand by for further updates…
