Income Tax Assessment Act 1997
A distribution that an Australian corporate tax entity makes to a foreign resident is not subject to dividend withholding tax, and is not assessable income, to the extent that the entity declares it to be conduit foreign income.
An Australian corporate tax entity has an amount that is non-assessable non-exempt income if it receives a distribution including conduit foreign income from another such entity and it makes a distribution including conduit foreign income.
This Subdivision sets out the method of working out an entity's conduit foreign income.
It also discourages streaming of distributions to entities that can take advantage of the receipt of conduit foreign income.
