SECTION 45-880   CONTINUED APPLICATION OF SUBDIVISION 45-Q TO THE HEAD COMPANY OF AN ACQUIRED GROUP  

45-880(1)  
This section applies to a company for which all of the following conditions are satisfied in relation to a particular time (the takeover time ):


(a) just before the takeover time, Subdivision 45-Q applied to the company as the *head company of a *consolidated group;


(b) at the takeover time, the company becomes a *wholly-owned subsidiary of a *member of another consolidated group or *MEC group;


(c) that other group is consolidated at or before the takeover time under section 703-50 or 719-50 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 ;


(d) the Commissioner receives the choice (or notice) under that section for the consolidation of that other group not later than 28 days after the takeover time, or within such further period (if any) as the Commissioner allows;


(e) at the takeover time, Subdivision 45-Q (including that Subdivision as applied under Subdivision 45-S ) does not apply to the head company or the *provisional head company of that other group.

45-880(2)  
For the purposes of this Part only, this Act has effect in relation to the company and the other *members of the *consolidated group mentioned in paragraph (1)(a) (the preserved group ) as if, during the period covered by subsection (5):


(a) the preserved group had continued to exist as a consolidated group; and


(b) the company were still the *head company of the preserved group; and


(c) Subdivision 45-Q had continued to apply to the company as the head company of the preserved group; and


(d) an entity, while being a *subsidiary member of the preserved group, were not treated as a member of the group mentioned in paragraph (1)(b) (the new group ).

45-880(3)  
Subsection (2) does not stop the company from being a member of the new group for the purposes of this Part during the period covered by subsection (5).

Note:

This means, for example, sections 45-855 and 45-860 apply to the head company as a member of the new group.

45-880(4)  
However, for the purposes of applying section 45-855 to the company, a reference in that section to an application of section 701-1 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 to the company in relation to the period mentioned in section 45-855 is taken to be:


(a) a reference only to an application of section 701-1 of that Act to the company as a member of the new group during that period; and


(b) not a reference to an application (because of subsection (2) of this section) of section 701-1 of that Act to the company as the *head company of the preserved group during that period.

45-880(5)  
This subsection covers the period that starts from the start of the *instalment quarter of the company that includes the takeover time and ends at the earlier of the following times:


(a) the end of the instalment quarter of the company during which the company ceases to be a member of the new group;


(b) just before the instalment quarter of the company during which the Commissioner gives the *initial head company instalment rate to the *head company, or the *provisional head company, of the new group.

45-880(6)  
The Commissioner may, on the application of the company made not later than 28 days after the takeover time, allow such extension of time for the purposes of paragraph (1)(d) as he or she considers appropriate.

45-880(7)  
To avoid doubt, nothing in this section prevents the operation of section 45-755 or 45-760 to *members of the preserved group while it continues to exist under subsection (2).
