Brian Richards, CTA, of Richards Advisory, has specialised in providing taxation advice to accounting and legal practitioners in respect of a wide range of business clients for approximately 40 years, or as he puts it “Has been around for a long time, but loves tax”. His particular taxation specialty areas include business restructuring, intellectual property transactions, CGT issues and tax planning matters.
At the 24th Noosa Tax Intensive in November, Brian joins workshop leaders Ash Chotai, CTA (Chotais Chartered Accountants), Neal Dallas, CTA (McInnes Wilson Lawyers), Linda Farmer, CTA (Grant Thornton), Stuart Glasgow, CTA (Mutual Trust Pty Ltd), and Maggie Millar, FTI (Grant Thornton) for a workshop on Division 7A and Division 152, coordinated by Paul Banister, CTA (Grant Thornton).
Brian tells us “The interactive style of the session will be of key benefit to delegates, with the practical applications of provisions the focus”.
His workshop draws on the issues covered in the plenary sessions ‘Loans and UPEs – Do We Need a Company Bypass … Or Maybe Even a Trust Transplant?’ from Greg Travers, CTA (William Buck), ‘ATO Hot Spots’ from the ATO’s Fiona Dillon, CTA, and ‘SMEs and Tax – Forever Changing’ by Linda Tapiolas, CTA (Cooper Grace Ward Lawyers).
The 24th Noosa Tax Intensive takes place 10-11 November 2016 at the Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort and features seven plenary sessions and three workshops over the two days, and includes 13.5 CPD hours. Find out more about the workshop and the plenary sessions here.
