HOW TO MAKE A CONSTRUCTIVE CONTRIBUTION TO THE INTEREST LIMITATION CONSULTATION PROCESS
Though we remain opposed to the impending interest limitation rules on investors, political reality necessitates constructive contribution from the property investment sector to ensure an (as much as possible) acceptable trade-off between investors’ private and public interests. To put it simply, investors have until 12 July to make the best out of a not-so-awesome situation.
So how to do that? Reading through the discussion document while fully appreciating the consequences of what is being proposed is hard enough as it is let alone writing an effective submission that will be compelling enough to affect positive change.
Worry not. This workshop is our commitment to support members through the process. Amanda Watt will give a high-level overview of the discussion document and pick out the most consequential aspects for most investors. As a parliamentary insider, Brooke will show you how to craft an effective submission to service your point of view.
This is both an in-person (limited capacity) and a live-streamed session. Register on this page to attend in-person and here for live-stream access.
- A high-level overview of the Design of the interest limitation rule and additional bright-line rules discussion document;
- A brief summary of the most consequential aspects of the consultation and how different policy design outcomes will affect investors;
- Insights and tips on how to structure your submission to maximise its effects on the eventual policy design.
Amanda Watt is the Director of Shortland Chartered Accountants and Brooke van Velden is the ACT Party Deputy Leader and its housing spokesperson.
Attendees are encouraged to bring along their digital/writing device as well as draft submission for feedback.
Due to a very limited room capacity, pre-event registration is mandatory for in-person attendance.
* APIA remains a politically neutral organisation. Brooke’s participation at this session is intended to help participants understand the technical aspects of the parliamentary process.
