Imputation legislation yet to be introduced

The holding period and related payment rules are yet to be rewritten into the simplified imputation system. The Assistant Treasurer announced in media release number 008/2103External Link, issued on 14 December 2013 that the government does not intend to proceed with further legislation in this area. It was stated that, due to the savings provisions, the rules continue to apply and are effective. In this regard, the rules referenced are the current holding period and related payment rules contained in former Division 1A of the ITAA 1936 – see more below.
