    Attention

    This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

    End of attention

    This question ascertains if you have changed your entity status from general to financial during 2019–20.

    The thin capitalisation provisions categorise non-ADI entities as either:

    • a kind of financial entity (covered by code 2, 4, 6 or 10) or
    • a kind of general entity (covered by code 1, 3, 5 or 9).

    See the above table of thin capitalisation entity types.

    If you have changed your entity type for thin capitalisation from general to financial during 2019–20, answer Yes at A item 33.

    For more information about the different types of thin capitalisation entities, see the provisions in the Non-authorised deposit-taking institution (Non-ADI) table.
