With the U.S. Tax deadline approaching, the American Australian Association in partnership with SMATS, is proud to be your resource by providing up to date information to our community. A lot has changed since Steve Douglas published the 1st edition of his book “The Aussie Expat – The Luckiest Person on Earth” in early 2004. This essential guide taught expats how to maximise their unique taxation and financial opportunities whilst abroad and create a tax-free return to Australian for years after arrival.


Please join Executive Chairman of SMATS Group, Steve Douglas as he reviews the below topics:

  • Income and capital gains taxes
  • Family home tax concessions
  • Superannuation changes
  • Proposed changes to the Australian Residency Rule
  • Key tax planning strategies for expats before and now
  • When is the best time for expats to buy and sell property
  • Essential repatriation tax planning considerations

This webinar will feature a presentation from Steve Douglas, followed by a Q&A session.

This webinar is complimentary to attend; registration is essential.
