Division 6 - Trust income  

SECTION 98A   NON-RESIDENT BENEFICIARIES ASSESSABLE IN RESPECT OF CERTAIN INCOME  

98A(1)  


Where the trustee of a trust estate is assessed and is liable to pay tax in respect of the whole or a part of a share of the net income of a trust estate of a year of income in pursuance of subsection 98(3) , the assessable income of the beneficiary who is presently entitled to that share of the income of the trust estate shall include:


(a) so much of the individual interest of the beneficiary in the net income of the trust estate as is attributable to a period when the beneficiary was a resident; and


(b) so much of the individual interest of the beneficiary in the net income of the trust estate as is attributable to a period when the beneficiary was not a resident and is also attributable to sources in Australia.

98A(2)  


Where the trustee of a trust estate is assessed and is liable to pay tax in respect of the whole or a part of a share of the net income of a trust estate of a year of income in pursuance of subsection 98(3) :


(a) there shall be deducted from the income tax assessed against the beneficiary the amount (in this subsection referred to as the relevant amount ) of the tax paid by the trustee in respect of the beneficiary's interest in the net income of the trust estate; and


(b) if the relevant amount is greater than the amount of the income tax assessed against the beneficiary - the Commissioner shall pay to the beneficiary an amount equal to the difference between those 2 amounts.

Note:

See Division 3A of Part IIB of the Taxation Administration Act 1953 for the rules about how the Commissioner must pay the entity. Division 3 of Part IIB allows the Commissioner to apply the amount owing as a credit against tax debts that the entity owes to the Commonwealth.

(a) is not, in respect of that share of the income of the trust estate, a beneficiary in the capacity of a trustee of another trust estate; and


(b) is a non-resident at the end of the year of income;

the assessable income of the beneficiary includes so much of the individual interest of the beneficiary in the net income of the trust estate as is reasonably attributable to a part of the net income of another trust estate in respect of which the trustee of the other trust estate is assessed and is liable to pay tax under subsection 98(4) .

98A(4)  


To the extent that subsection (3) includes an amount in the assessable income of a beneficiary of a trust estate, the amount is not included by subsection (1) or section 100 .
