Q: We have a 108 acre farm in Qld which is registered for GST and has been in steady operation for 12 years as a beef cattle farm. We are planning to sell the farm and understand that GST will be payable unless we sell it to another party who wants to carry on farming. We are in an area where the lifestyle buyer will probably be the more likely buyer so we are wondering about ways to get around this. If we wind up the partnership and sell all the cattle and do not operate as a farm for say 6 months to a year and then sold to a private buyer, would the sale be GST exempt?
