    End of attention

    For the purposes of accruals taxation under the CFC measures, an eligible transferor is an Australian entity or a controlled foreign entity that has transferred property or services in certain specified circumstances to a non-resident trust.

    If the transfer was to a trust which is a discretionary trust before the IP time, the transferor will be an eligible transferor if he or she was able to control the trust at any time after the IP time and before the transfer. The IP time is 7.30pm by standard time in the Australian Capital Territory on 12 April 1989.

    An exception is made where the transfer was an ordinary business transaction for full value. If the transfer was made after the IP time, the transferor will be an eligible transferor unless the transfer was for full value and the transferor did not have control of the trust after the transfer.

    If the transfer was made after the IP time to a trust that is a non-discretionary trust or a public unit trust at the test time, the transferor will be an eligible transferor if the transfer was made for no consideration or for inadequate consideration.
