myTax 2017 Forestry managed investment scheme income

How to report income from forestry managed investment schemes in myTax.

Last updated 11 June 2017

A forestry interest in a forestry managed investment scheme (FMIS) is a right to benefits produced by the scheme (whether the right is actual, prospective or contingent and whether it is enforceable or not).

You are an initial participant in an FMIS if you meet the following conditions:

  • you obtained your forestry interest in the FMIS from the forestry manager of the scheme
  • your payment to obtain the forestry interest in an FMIS results in the establishment of trees.

You are a subsequent participant if you are not an initial participant.

For more information, see Forestry managed investment scheme income.
