RULING

Where the incorporation of physiotherapy practices is permitted under the relevant laws of a State or Territory and can be explained as an ordinary commercial practice, there would be no objection, in principle, to incorporation provided it follows the guidelines permitted for the incorporation of medical practices.

2. Advice available to this Office suggests that in some States incorporation would not be permitted under the relevant legislation nor would the appropriate authorities register incorporated physiotherapy practices. In these circumstances, it will be necessary for written advice to be supplied by the relevant State or Territory authorities approving incorporation before the arrangements may be accepted for income tax purposes.
