An investment body in relation to a Part VA investment shall not, after the end of the phasing-in period mentioned in section 202DA and before 1 July 2000, pay to a person unattributed income in respect of the investment that is not paid in money unless an amount equal to the amount that would, if the income had been paid in the form of an amount of money equal to the value of the income, have been required to be deducted under subsection 221YHZC(1A) has been paid to the Commissioner in respect of the income.
An amount paid by an investment body under subsection (1B) is recoverable by the investment body as a debt payable by the investor in relation to the investment concerned.
If any of the amount which a person is liable to pay under subsection (1AAA), (1A) or (1B) remains unpaid after the time by which it is due to be paid, the person is liable to pay the general interest charge on the unpaid amount for each day in the period that:

Notwithstanding anything contained in any other law of the Commonwealth, or in any law of a State or Territory, an amount payable to the Commissioner by a trustee under subsection (3) has priority over all other debts, whether preferential, secured or unsecured.
Where a trustee, being a trustee of an estate of a bankrupt or the liquidator of a company that is being wound up, is liable to pay an amount to the Commissioner under this section, subsection (4) does not have the effect that the amount is payable in priority to any costs, charges or expenses of the administration of the estate or of the winding up of the company (including costs of a creditor or other person upon whose petition the sequestration order or the winding up order (if any) was made and remuneration of the trustee) that are lawfully payable out of the assets of the estate or of the company except where, in the case of the winding up of a company, the Crown in right of a State or of the Northern Territory or any other creditor is entitled to the payment of a debt by the liquidator, in priority to all or any of those costs, charges and expenses and has not waived that priority.
