    If my father sells his 9 acre property to a developer for $1.7 million and spends $700,000 on his new home (downsizes). If he places $200,000 in his super to account for him losing the pension. If he ‘gifts’ $200,000 to each of his 4 children, will he or his children required to pay Gift Tax?

    This is a legal question

    There is no gift tax in Australia. The gift to the children will be tax free. But this will not effect the CGT on the disposal on the property.

    But before he does this he should seek legal advice as there are wide ranging consequences. Depending on the circumstances he may be better off lending the children the money, interest free perhaps.
