    Does company title property get the PPOR CGT exemption? the property itself doesn't change hands, only shares held by the owner when he/she sells. Does the owner get the PPOR CGT exemption in this case?

    What are some other tax considerations of company title units?

    company title is basically treated the same as strata for tax purposes. But this doesn't mean any property owned by a company. the consitution has to give a right to reside in a specific unit

    The main residence rules refers to an ownership interest rather than legal title etc. There are tax rulings etc on this. Interest can be through company title, some trust interest and licenses and other rights

    Ownership interest and ownership period
