Costs to rise for home buyers

first_imgFile photo.CONVEYANCING costs are about to become more expensive for those who decide to purchase a new home.Under new federal laws, buyers of new properties would now have to ensure that the GST owed (on the property purchased) by the developer of the project, was paid to the Australian Taxation Office.The Queensland Law Society has already alerted its members about the changes, which came into effect on July 1, and warns it means higher conveyancing costs for buyers.Real Estate Institute of Queensland CEO Antonia Mercorella was also concerned about the changes.She said once again the ATO was farming out or outsourcing its responsibilities for tax collection.“It’s the everyday person in the street who bears the brunt of this legislation, which is largely a measure targeting developers,’’ she said.“It adds a level of red tape to the property transaction and the buyers will be faced with additional conveyancing procedures, which, of course, means additional costs.’’Queensland Law Society Property Law committee Chair, Matt Raven, said the situation came about because the ATO was concerned it had been missing out on GST revenue it was owed by developers.“Some developers in the past have completed developments, settled the sales of all their apartments, disposed of all the money or paid it back to the bank and what have you, and then wound the company up without doing their final GST returns,’’ he said.“That is called phoenixing, the company disappears in a puff of smoke with all these debts owing.’’“So the gist of the new law is that now effectively the GST or an estimate of the GST has got to be collected and accounted to the ATO on settlement on each sale. So the way they have done that is they have put the obligation on the buyer to withhold a proportion of the purchase price.“So the buyer has to basically not pay that proportion to the seller at settlement and have to account to the ATO for it.’’Queensland Law Society president Ken Taylor is concerned it has added another step to conveyancing and said buyers would be the ones who had to pay for this extra work.Mr Taylor said the move was effectively making solicitors tax collectors.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020Residential contracts will now have an additional step added to them in relation to the GST and Mr Taylor said solicitors acting for buyers would have to assess whether a client must withhold GST and make a payment to the ATO.The process also involved completing two online forms which had to be lodged with the ATO.These extra steps would add to the time it took to do property conveyancing and therefore there would be additional costs, Mr Taylor said.While the organisation made submissions on the legislation and raised concerns about it Mr Taylor said it had still proceeded.“It is disappointing that we have seen multiple additional administrative duties added to our profession over recent years by both the State and Federal Governments,’’ he said.The new legislation does not apply to existing properties.Ms Mercorella said the REIQ had received significant feedback from members that the changes had not been clearly explained by the ATO.“We have produced extensive materials on the issue to educate our membership, including video content, in-room sessions and written material. There has been minimal education rolled out by the ATO, and yet again industry gets left to do the educating. It’s not a real estate agent’s role to give tax advice and yet consumers often expect the agents to be experts on all matters relating to property sale,’’ she said.Ms Mercorella said this was another impost put on the industry.“This GST-withholding legislation follows similar legislative changes in the foreign-buyer space where the ATO has made the assumption that buyers of property valued at $750,000 or more are foreign and required to pay capital gains tax, unless they could produce a clearance certificate to attest otherwise,’’ she said.“With that particular legislation, the threshold started at $2 million and then made a significant leap to the $750,000 threshold which means it has gone from affecting a small group to almost affecting the majority of property transactions. Where will it end?’’last_img read more

O.B. boosts draft stock with defensive MVP

first_imgThis weekend, dubbed “Badger Weekend,” was one of the busiest during the 2009-10 academic year in terms of total events taking place in Madison.It was also one of the most successful.In the Kohl Center alone there were three thrilling Wisconsin victories as the men’s and women’s hockey teams combined with the men’s basketball squad to go 3-1-1 in the building from Friday through Sunday.On the west side of campus, the wrestling team knocked off previously undefeated Indiana at the Field House and the men’s and women’s swimming and tennis teams had varying levels of success at the Natatorium and Nielsen Tennis Stadium.Finally, in the Badger Track Classic, the men’s and women’s track teams got an excellent warm up for next weekend’s Wisconsin Elite Invitational.Yet, none of the teams mentioned so far featured the most successful Badger this weekend.Of all those wearing the motion ‘W’ on “Badger Weekend,” the one who had the most profitable weekend was not on campus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In fact, he was not even in the state of Wisconsin this weekend.Down in Orlando, Fla. — where the high temperature was 76 degrees Saturday afternoon — former UW defensive end O’Brien Schofield did his best to boost his draft stock in the 2010 East-West Shrine Game.Returning to the Florida Citrus Bowl — the site of his final game in a Wisconsin uniform — Schofield, who played outside linebacker in the game, earned defensive MVP honors as the East squad defeated the West 13-10.Schofield recorded three solo tackles in the game (each of which came in the second half), while intercepting a pass to stop the West’s first possession after they had driven 33 yards from their own 23-yard line to the East 44-yard line.Just under five minutes into the game, Schofield picked off a third down pass over the middle from BYU’s Max Hall and returned it for two yards. Schofield didn’t really do anything special on the interception, but as Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl of ESPN’s Scouts Inc. pointed out, “he made the routine play look routine, which is a good step.”While the fans at home didn’t see Schofield’s interception (ESPN2 was still airing the end of the Western Kentucky-Middle Tennessee State basketball game at the time) and his name was even spelled wrong by the local paper (it’s Schofield, not Shofield), those who really matter — NFL scouts — saw what Schofield did.In fact, they’ll probably see it again and again leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft in April.That’s because Schofield, despite having just finished up a monster season at defensive end for the Badgers, is projected to move to outside linebacker in the NFL. The move is intriguing, if for no other reason than because Schofield once was a linebacker when he originally arrived in Madison.As Schofield gets reacquainted with his former position, scouts across the NFL will be watching.Projected as a mid- to late-round pick, the 6-foot-2, 242-pound native of Great Lakes, Ill., had impressed practice observers all week before the Shrine Game. He was said to have struggled early in the week before excelling near the end.Even Todd McShay of ESPN Scouts Inc. was impressed.“He’s reacting and just playing now instead of needing that split second to think about what he’s supposed to be doing,” McShay wrote of Schofield. “He has good, quick feet; maybe the quickest feet on anyone here, and that will help him. Give him lots of credit for hanging in there in what had to be a frustrating week at times and for getting better and better as the week went on.”When the game began, Schofield continued to improve his draft stock.In their running game blog, Muench and Weidl, commented twice on the play of Schofield. They noted he looked particularly comfortable as the East squad’s SAM linebacker.“East outside linebacker O’Brien Schofield (Wisconsin) has been playing off the ball, but he was just over the tight end as the SAM linebacker in that last series and he just looks more comfortable in that role,” they wrote. “He’s more comfortable over the tight end, but he’s been impressive during the week as well with the strides he’s made playing off the line.”In an interview posted on, Schofield had this to say during the week:“I came out here today to show that I can stand up and play on the outside. It’s been a great time showing my skills and that I can make that transition. I’m gonna show I’m a coverage linebacker,” he said. “I’m likely [going to] have to stand up and play strong side linebacker and I feel I can work in any scheme.“But I would love to put my hand down and just get up and go.”In the same interview, Schofield noted he had been contacted by scouts from Carolina, Chicago, Philadelphia, Kansas City, San Francisco, Washington, Atlanta and New England.Clearly, there’s no shortage of interest in the nation’s runner up in terms of tackles for loss.Based on recent interviews and the way his career went at Wisconsin — switching from linebacker to defensive end and working his tail off to become among the nation’s best at the position — I like the odds of Schofield finding a spot on an NFL roster next fall.Jordan is a senior majoring in journalism and political science.

Koijee Takes Issue with Justice Minister Dean

first_imgThe CDC party top brass was present in full in Montserrado County District 13 on Nov. 17, to support their candidate. Youth Chair and Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee (in green outfit) happened to be in the assigned area of opposition candidate Cornelia Kruah-Togba when the scuffle took place.Wants November 17 violence investigatedMonrovia City Mayor Jefferson T. Koijee yesterday vented his anger against Justice Minister Cllr. Musa Dean for “poorly handling the recent political violence in Montserrado County District #13 by-election, which was eventually won by an independent candidate.Mayor Koijee expressed disbelief that a sitting government official was accused by a sitting Senator of illegally carrying arms during a political rally, but the Justice Minister is yet to institute an investigation so as to establish the authenticity of the accusation.“It is unfortunate that we have a Justice Minister who has refused to institute an investigation in the wake of a grave accusation on a senior government official who, it is claimed, carried arms at a political rally. The allegation came from a sitting Senator of Grand Bassa County, and the Justice Ministry cannot do anything about it? I am disappointed and call on the Justice Minister to correct the errors committed,” Koijee said.“Look! We run a government, and we have a Justice Minister that is duty-bound to protect lives and properties regardless of the status of a particular person, and he sits there watching these kinds of gross breach of the law continue.  I call on you, Mr. Justice Minister, to do the right thing,” Koijee ordered.It can be recalled that on November 17, a stone-throwing battle ensued between partisans of the ruling Coalition of Democratic Change (CDC) and partisans of the alliance comprising the Unity Party (UP), Liberty Party (LP), the Alternative National Congress (ANC) and the All Liberian Party (ALP), during final campaign rallies ahead of the Montserrado District #13 by-election.However, an independent candidate, Mr. Edward Flomo, otherwise called “Color Green” emerged winner of the , according to results announced by the National Elections Commission (NEC).An eye-witness to the melee, Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence accused Mayor Koijee of being in possession of side-arms while leading youth of the governing CDC to a campaign rally of UP-Alliance candidate Cornelia Kruah-Togba.Since the campaign violence, several organizations, including the United Nations (UN), African Union (AU), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas (ALJA) have condemned the violence.ALJA termed as “unfortunate” the electoral brawl which erupted between partisans of the ruling CDC and supporters of opposition candidate Cornelia Krua-Togba in the Montserrado County District #13 by-election during the campaign rally held in the township of New Georgia.In a statement issued on Tuesday, November 20, ALJA said it condemns the reported gangsterism, and called on the Weah Administration to act swiftly in order to bring those allegedly connected to the melee to justice.The Association said the reported street fight is reminiscent of Liberia’s ugly past, especially the successive civil wars, which callously destroyed thousands of human lives and millions of US dollars’ worth of properties between 1989 and 2003.ALJA said the report is “troubling for a country that is evolving from 14 years of civil wars.”Meanwhile, the Association has urged the Liberian government to set up an independent panel of eminent Liberian organizations for a speedy, honest and objective investigation of the crisis.UN, AU, ECOWASAlso, a joint press release from the UN, the AU Liaison Office in Liberia and the Office of the Special Representative of the President of the ECOWAS Commission in Liberia, expressed grave concern on the violent incident that took place at a campaign rally in Monrovia and ahead of the November 20 District 13 # legislative by-election in Montserrado.In the statement, the UN, AU, and ECOWAS condemned the acts of violence and stated that it is inimical to the continued peace and stability in the country as well as to the holding of credible, transparent and democratic elections.However, the UN, AU, and ECOWAS welcomed the prompt intervention of officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) in carrying out a thorough investigation, with a view to identifying the perpetrators of the violent incident and ensuring that the law takes its full course.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
