Property development almost always gives rise to GST implications because of the high dollar value of the transactions involved. Eddie Chung shares the details you need to know before you consider putting spade to soil.

    Eddie. In my case, home of 7 years. I knock down and Build 2 units. I pre sell one to obtain finance. build 2 and live in one . I’m told the conveyancer takes out the gst at settlement . As I’m not registered for gst can I claim the gst taken at settlement back from the government at some point? Or is it taken never to be given back ? I’m not a business or developer just a citizen . So I can’t claim any ongoing tax outputs agains the tax taken at settlement ?
    Everyone is so vague on this hope you can help

    Gday Eddie

    May I suggest you review the 5 yr limit you gave placed on new residential development rented. You’ll find that this limit is excessive and that there is NO set limit by the ATO rather a set criteria and circumstances. Certain case law states 14 months plus would be a more suitable timeline by saga in, need to meet a list of criteria.

    Hi there,

    In my case, I have a commercial property purchased around May 2017, and I have claimed back gst on the property since I was registered at the time. The property is also leased to a business for 3 years.

    Now I'm thinking of selling this property, do I need to include gst in my selling price? Can I sell as going concern despite I have already claimed back the get? Or do I need to pay the gst back and then i can sell as going concern? I am a bit confused with all the gst stuffs. It would be great if you could help me with some clarifications.

    Thank you.
