Having studied capital gains tax in other jurisdictions and drawing on his extensive experience in the New Zealand taxation system, Ernst & Young Tax Partner, Aaron Quintal, gives an in-depth presentation on what exactly is a capital gains tax and its real consequences. Mr Quintal's presentation will go beyond the mainstream rhetorics of pitting the pro- camp against the anti- and examine the essential question: Is capital gains tax the silver bullet to housing affordability? Specific talking points will include: 1. Broad overview of a capital gains tax and its likely form in New Zealand; 2. Projected effects a capital gains tax has on the New Zealand economy; 3. Comparison with the current income tax regime: whether a capital gains tax is necessary or redundant; 4. Specific implications a capital gains tax will have on property investors; 5. How will property prices be affected; 6. Will a capital gains tax ultimately be detrimental to investors and renters? Addressing the key taxation and affordability issues facing New Zealanders, this presentation will conclude with a challenge to you - to cast a more informed and confident vote on the 20th.
