    A GOOD REFRESHER. The thresholds have reduced, so we need to update this one.

  2. jrockett

    A good refresher. The thresholds for FIRBs attention has been substantially reduced, so this one needs an update.

  3. jrockett

    Good refresher, but there has been a major reduction in the relevant threshold for attention (I think the business needs to be greater than $300M), before FIRB get involved. Perhaps an update.

    Good refresher, but there has been a major reduction in the relevant threshold for attention (I think the business needs to be greater than $300M), before FIRB get involved. Perhaps an update.

  5. jrockett

    A little dry. I didn’t realise that this FIRB lecture would be focused on property law but should have. My interest is purely corporation law, so my interest was significantly more macro. Also, the minimal thresholds before interest from FIRB will be attracted has just increased from 25M to $300M (I think), which greatly reduces FIRB attention, so will need an update. This just positively impacted an international transition to Canada following their dispute with the ASIC and the ASX.
