AUSTRALIAN TAX TREATIES
The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (the MLI) has modified the application of this tax treaty. A synthesised text of the MLI and this tax treaty is available to facilitate the understanding of how the MLI modifies this tax treaty.
With reference to paragraph (1) of Article 24,
the Governments of the Contracting States acknowledge that a company which is a resident of Australia is, in accordance with the provisions of the taxation law of Australia in force at the date of signature of the Convention, entitled to a rebate in its assessment at the average rate of tax payable by the company in respect of dividends that are included in its taxable income and are received from a company which is a resident of Korea. In the event that Australia should cease to allow a company which is a resident of Australia a rebate in its assessment at the average rate of tax payable by the company in respect of dividends derived from sources in Korea and included in the taxable income of the company, the Governments of the Contracting States will enter into negotiations in order to establish new provisions concerning the credit to be allowed by Australia against its tax on the dividends.
