    Investments in foreign hybrids

    A foreign hybrid is an entity that was taxed in Australia as a company but taxed overseas as a partnership. This can include a limited partnership, a limited liability partnership and a United States limited liability company.

    If you have an investment in a foreign hybrid (referred to as being a member of a foreign hybrid), you are treated for Australian tax purposes as having an interest in each asset of the partnership.

    As a consequence, any capital gain or capital loss made with respect to a foreign hybrid or its assets is taken to be made by the member. More information is available on our website.

    General value shifting regime

    If you own shares in a company or units (or other fixed interests) in a trust and value has been shifted in or out of your shares or units, you may be affected by value shifting rules. Generally, the rules only affect individuals who control the company or trust, or individuals who are related to individuals or entities that control the company or trust.

    For more information, see General value shifting regime: who it affects, available on our website.
