Statement of attribution for non-withholding MITs

Last updated 14 February 2022

Complete the statement of attribution for payments to foreign residents if:

  • the AMIT is not a withholding MIT, and
  • a liability arises for the trustee in respect of an amount attributed to a foreign resident under section 276-105 of the ITAA 1997.

The information disclosed in the statement of attribution must be provided to each member to whom that information relates, to enable them to complete their own tax return.

If you do not make the information available to the foreign resident, you may be liable to pay a penalty.
