Investments in foreign hybrids

End of attention
A foreign hybrid is an entity that is taxed in Australia as a company but taxed overseas as a partnership. This can include a limited partnership, a limited liability partnership and a US 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 for a foreign hybrid or its assets is taken to be made by the member.
