109(3)  
The representative is, by force of this section:


(a) authorised and required to retain from time to time any money that comes to the representative in the capacity as agent for the other person or trustee of the trust estate, or so much of it as is sufficient to pay the amount of tax or charge;

(c) indemnified for all payments that the representative makes pursuant to this section.

109(4)  


For the purposes of ensuring payment of the amount of tax or charge, the Commissioner has the same remedies against attachable property of any kind vested in, under the control or management of, or in the possession of, the representative as the Commissioner would have against the property of any other person in respect of an amount of tax or related charge payable by the other person.
