TAX LAW Case Study

Posted on Updated on

Sinclair Pondage at all relevant times held a German passport. From the time of his first visit Australia in 2007 until the end of the 2016 income year, he held a visa which permitted him to live and work in Australia.

During the time he was in Australia, Sinclair worked under contract as a marine engineer on a sea-going barge owned by an Australian company. Subsequently, the barge was leased to a Malaysia-based company, Ocean Development Ltd (OD), for use in carrying out work in China. Sinclair accepted employment with OD and left Australia on 8 July 2015, leaving his son and wife in Australia. He worked for Ocean Development Ltd for nine months in China and earned AUD $90,000. He then terminated his contract and returned to Australia where he stayed for the rest of the income year. On his arrival back in Australia he entered into a partnership business with his wife.

Accommodation provided for Sinclair in China by his employer was of a temporary or transitory nature in the form of single men’s quarters or barracks.  Meals were also provided. Ocean Development Ltd.’s office in Malaysia paid Sinclair’s wages into his bank account in Australia, after deducting tax required to be paid in Malaysia. Sinclair paid no income tax in China. Sinclair’s assets in Australia are his home in Sydney, an investment residential unit in Randwick, a super policy with AMP, listed shares, bank accounts and membership of a local golf club. Sinclair intended to be absent from Australia for approximately nine months and was in fact away for that period only.

Required:

For the 2015/2016 tax year:

1) Is Sinclair a resident or non-resident of Australia? Refer to the relevant legislation and cases.    (10 marks)

2) Determine the source of income Sinclair received while he was working in China? (6 marks)

Question 2

On 10 July 2015, Jarrold Alexander was transferred to the Singapore office of his company, Global AIH Ltd, for five years. His wife Rosemarrie accompanied him to Singapore. In Singapore they lived in a house owned by the company and leased their Sydney residence. While residing in Singapore Rosemarrie borrowed $100 000 from the Commonwealth Bank on 1 December 2015, to fund the purchase of 50 000 shares in Global AIH.

During the 2015/2016 tax year Rosemarrie received $5 000 as her share of net rental income (after deductions) from the lease of their Australian home, and $2 500 in fully franked dividends from Global AIH. She incurred no other expenses in deriving the rental income, but her interest payments on the Commonwealth Bank loan amounted to $5 650.

Required: 

Advise Rosemarrie Alexander for the Australian tax consequences of these transactions. (Hints: you need to do some research on the tax consequence of dividends paid to a resident and non-resident) (14 marks)

Claims

Decide whether Patty Plaintiff has any legal claims arising from a series of unfortunate events. After reading the scenario, answer the questions that follow, making sure to fully explain the basis of your decision.
Patty Plaintiff is shopping at her favorite store, Cash Mart. She is looking for a new laptop, but she can’t find one she likes. Then, realizing that she is going to be late for an appointment, she attempts to leave the store, walking very fast. However, before she can leave, she is stopped by a security guard who accuses her of shoplifting. Patty, who has taken nothing, denies any wrongdoing. The officer insists and takes Patty to a small room in the back of the store. The guard tells Patty that if she attempts to leave the room she will be arrested and sent to jail. At this point, the guard leaves the room. Patty is scared and waits in the room for over an hour until the manager comes in and apologizes and tells Patty that she is free to go.

About this same time, Gerry Golfer is hitting golf balls in his backyard. Gerry decides to break out his new driver and hits a golf ball out of his backyard into the Cash Mart parking lot. The golf ball hits Patty Plaintiff on the head and knocks her unconscious just as she is leaving the store.

Five days later, after recovering from her injuries, Patty returns to work at Acme Corporation. Unfortunately, she used her company email to send her mom a personal email about her injury despite being aware that Acme’s company policy prohibits use of company email for personal communication. Patty’s supervisor, Barry Bossley, discovers Patty’s violation and Patty is reprimanded. When Patty goes home she uses her personal computer to post disparaging comments about her boss and Acme Corporation on social media. The next day Patty is fired from her job.

 

In a 6-10 paragraph paper, answer the following question: What types of legal claims could Patty make against Cash Mart, Gerry, and Acme Corporation? Consider the following:

What are the possible tort claims that Patty can make against Cash Mart? Discuss the elements of the claim and how those elements relate to the facts in the scenario.

Was Gerry negligent when he hit the golf ball that injured Patty? Discuss the elements of negligence and use facts from the scenario to support your decision.

Does Patty have a right to privacy when using Acme Corporation’s email system? Discuss the elements of the claim and how those elements relate to the facts in the scenario.

Can Patty be legally fired from her job for making negative comments about her boss and her company on social media? Discuss the elements of the claim and how those elements relate to the facts in the scenario.
