Building Information Modelling is its official label; but BIM is essentially about effective sharing and management of information for the collective benefit of all involved on a construction project.
If the locality where your company’s real property is situated went through a revaluation of real property for tax purposes effective as of January 1, 2014, your company should soon be receiving a notice of assessment. You may open the envelope with a sigh, read the contents, and wonder how the local assessor came up with that value.

The introduction of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (PPSA) has been one of the most significant law reforms in recent times. The enactment of the PPSA has attempted to streamline the operation of personal property securities laws in Australia, replacing a number of existing State and Territory laws, and creating one register for personal property securities Australia wide. The enactment of the PPSA has seen relatively little judicial consideration with respect to its operation, which has left practitioners' guessing as to how the courts would interpret its strict requirements.
