    End of attention

    The FIF rules apply in working out the attributable income of a CFC because of the assumption that the company is a resident of Australia. However, rules apply to prevent double taxation where a company FIF is also a CFC. These rules provide an exemption from the FIF measures for an interest held by a CFC in a company FIF if a share of the attributable income of the company FIF is included in your assessable income under the CFC measures for:

    • a statutory accounting period coinciding with the notional accounting period of the company FIF for FIF taxation purposes, or
    • statutory accounting periods ending and commencing during the notional accounting period of the company FIF.

    For the purposes of the above tests, the Tax Office will accept that a share of the attributable income of a company FIF has been included in your assessable income if no amount was included solely because the company FIF had no attributable income. See Taxation Determination TD 93/167 for further assistance.
