Taxation Administration Act 1953
Note: See section 3AA .Chapter 2 - Collection, recovery and administration of income tax
Note: A Commissioner ' s Remedial Power (CRP 2017/1) is relevant to this part of the tax law. Taxation Administration (Remedial Power - Foreign Resident Capital Gains Withholding) Determination 2017 (F2017L00992) modifies the operation of s 18-15 , 18-20 and 18-25 in Sch 1 to the Taxation Administration Act 1953 as follows:
To the extent that an entity ' s entitlement to a credit referred to in s 18-15 , 18-20 or 18-25 in Sch 1 to TAA is in respect of an amount paid to the Commissioner under Subdiv 14-D of Sch 1 to TAA, treat the entitlement as arising in the income year in which the transaction causing that application of Subdiv 14-D is recognised for income tax purposes for the entity. The modification applies in respect of transactions entered into on or after 1 July 2016.
An entity must treat a modification as not applying to it or any other entity if the modification would produce a less favourable result for it. The Commissioner is empowered by s 370-5 of Sch 1 to TAA to make modifications, by legislative instrument, to ensure the law is administered to achieve its intended purpose or object.
The Commissioner must refund to an entity all or part of an *amount withheld from a *withholding payment covered by section 12-140 or 12-145 that was made to that entity if:
(a) the entity applies in writing for the refund; and
(b) the Commissioner is satisfied that the entity was entitled to give *the investment body a declaration under Division 5 of Part VA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 in relation to the *Part VA investment in respect of which the withholding payment was made, but did not do so; and
(c) the Commissioner is also satisfied it is fair and reasonable to make the refund, having regard to the purposes of this Part and any other matters that the Commissioner considers appropriate.
A person who is dissatisfied with a decision under this section may object against the decision in the manner set out in Part IVC .
