Paris: Australian Property and Taxation Seminar

Monday, 21st May 2012
Renaissance Hotel Arc d'Triomphe
Paris, France

Advance France are inviting members and friends to a special seminar with Steve Douglas, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Australasian Taxation Services and Chairman of SMATS Group. Steve is a regular presenter in regard to the unique taxation advantages available to potential property investors, expatriates and migrants to Australia. He will cover the budget issues affecting the general economy and taxation system. In conjunction with Advance and as part of an annual tour worldwide, Steve will be presenting insight into this year ahead for those who are interested in seeking answers to what is occurring in Australia in regard to property, mortgages and taxation and how this could impact their lives. 

In 2011, Australia's Treasurer, Wayne Swan, was recognised by EUROMONEY Magazine for his efforts in keeping Australia out of the Global Financial Crisis. The budget for 2012 will set the scene as they try to reduce spending and reign in large deficits in order to bring the budget back into surplus. This will be a major task to achieve without having an adverse impact on the Australian economy.

Find out what new initiatives are in store or announced; important changes taking place to the taxation system and the impact of these changes to investors, expatriates or intended migrants, and how to benefit from them; and finally, how the Australian property markets may react.

This seminar will be followed by a networking cocktail in the Makassar Lounge.
