Resource Taxation

This four-day workshop examines the taxation of resource projects and resource companies in Australia. It covers income tax, royalties, petroleum resource rent tax, state duties and GST. The course will also look at common tax issues which arise for resource companies in domestic and cross-border transactions.

A range of non-renewable resource industries are covered, including mining, oil and gas. Lawyers, accountants, government officials and resource company personnel who need a working knowledge of how resource projects and resource transactions are taxed will benefit from this course.

The course will cover the following key areas: 

  • resource tax policy;
  • taxation on the acquisition or disposal of mining and petroleum assets and companies;
  • operational tax issues for resource companies; and
  • international tax issues such as offshore marketing hubs and outbound investment in resource projects.
