Vacant Land Deductions No Longer Available

Legislation has been passed recently to deny deductions for losses or outgoings incurred that relate to holding vacant land by individuals, partnerships, trusts or self-managed superannuation funds.

Various exclusions apply including where land is for primary production or where it is held available for use in the course of carrying on a business.

The amendments apply from 1 July 2019.
