v10.1 - released 16/09/2020

Just one significant change has been made to Feastudy 10 (for PC) in Update 10.1 and it is an enhancement which provides a new database of suggested 2020-2021 scales for Stamp Duty on Transfer and Mortgage, Council Rates, Water & Sewer Rates and Land Tax for each Australian capital city, based on data obtained by Devfeas Pty Ltd for these charges from the relevant authorities in August 2020.

Feastudy 10 (for PC) is a major upgrade version of Feastudy for PC and the most significant enhancements in this upgrade are described as follows:

v9.5 - released 06/04/2020

Only bug-fixes have been made to Feastudy 9 (for PC) in Update 9.5. We believe the most significant bugs that are fixed in this update relate to the program’s calculations, and these bugs and their fixes are described as follows:

v9.4 - released 17/10/2019

One significant bug-fix has been made to Feastudy 9 (for PC) in Update 9.4 and it concerns a correction to Feastudy 9’s data base of the default (suggested) 2019-2020 scale for Stamp Duty on Transfer for the capital city, “Sydney”. In Update 9.3, when the following is entered in the Development/Investment Identification window of a feasibility file:

the fifth bracket for the “Up to and including” column of the Stamp Duty on Transfer scale for Sydney (as suggested by Devfeas Pty Ltd) is incorrectly given as $10,130,000 when it was intended to be $1,013,000. (The fix for this bug in Update 9.4 is that $1,013,000 is the default/suggested amount for the said fifth bracket.)

v9.3 - released 27/08/2019

Two significant enhancements have been made to Feastudy 9 (for PC) in Update 9.3. The enhancements are:

v9.2 - released 21/06/2019

Only one significant bug fix (correction) has been made to Feastudy 9 (for PC) in Update 9.2. The bug concerns calculation errors in the program’s cashflow reports when:

(The fix for this bug in Update 9.2 ensures that the program’s calculations for “Annual” cashflow reports are correct.)

v9.1 - released 29/10/2018

The only significant change made to Feastudy 9 (for PC) in Update 9.1 concerns one bug (error) fix. For certain development scenarios (data sets in files), selecting either the Construction Period Variations report or the Sell-On Period Variations report for display or print preview causes Feastudy 9.0 to crash, i.e. the program needs to be restarted to function again. (The fix for this bug in Update 9.1 ensures that the program does not crash when the said reports are selected for display or print preview for any scenarios.)

v9.0 - released 1/10/2018

The improvements made to Feastudy 9 (for PC) in the release version of the program include two significant enhancements and they are described as follows:

  1. In accord with the Australian “GST at Settlement” laws enacted in 2018, Feastudy 9 assumes that, at the settlement of each purchase of a “new Residential property” from a GST-registered developer, the purchaser must remit to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) either: seven (7%) of the purchase price of that property if the Margin Scheme (MS) applies to the transaction; or all of the GST that applies to the purchase price of that property if the Full Taxation (FT) method of GST applies to the transaction. For the purposes of Feastudy 9: “new Residential property” is one or more new residential allotments; or one or more new residences; and “GST at Settlement” is only paid for a Sell-On Income item when a check is entered in the check box for the question, “Is this item for new Residential property?”, for that Sell-On Income item. In the case of MS-taxed Sell-On Income items for “new Residential property,” if 7% of the value of such items is too high or too low for the purposes of the overall amount of GST that needs to be remitted to the ATO for the MS-taxed Sell-On Income, the program makes appropriate credit or debit adjustments at the relevant Business Activity Statement intervals. (The 2018 Australian “GST at Settlement” laws do not actually require a change in the overall [net] amount of GST that should be paid for a development’s GST-taxed development sales but they do require a change in the timing of the payment of GST cashflows that are relevant to “new Residential property.”) For a Development file, Feastudy 9 assumes that, when “the MS is to be applied” and "no Sell-On Income is MS taxed” are entered in the GST Settings window, all Sell-On Income items for the file are for “new Residential property.”
  2. A new data base of suggested 2018-2019 scales for Stamp Duty on Transfer and Mortgage, Council Rates, Water & Sewer Rates and Land Tax for each Australian capital city, based on data obtained by Devfeas Pty Ltd for these charges from the relevant authorities in September 2018, is included in Feastudy 9.
