    How this page works

    The Commissioner of Taxation has limited powers to modify the operation of tax law in circumstances where entities will benefit, or at least be no worse off, as a result of the modification. This power is known as the Commissioner's remedial power (CRP).

    To help taxpayers and practitioners, this page describes situations where the Commissioner has used the CRP to modify the operation of the law applying to tax administration. Each section has:

    • links to legislative instruments
    • links to explanatory materials
    • information about when it applies to and from.

    We will add to this page as the CRP is applied to new situations.
