PART 5 - NOTICES ABOUT COMPLYING FUND STATUS  

Division 3 - Complying fund status for tax purposes  

SECTION 45   COMPLYING SUPERANNUATION FUND  

45(1)   [Complying superannuation fund for tax purposes]  

A fund is a complying superannuation fund for the purposes of the Income Tax Assessment Act in relation to a year of income (the current year of income ) if, and only if:


(a) the Regulator has given a notice to a trustee of the fund under section 40 stating that the fund is a complying superannuation fund in relation to the current year of income; or


(b) the Regulator has given a notice to a trustee of the fund under section 40 stating that the fund is a complying superannuation fund in relation to a previous year of income and has not given a notice to a trustee of the fund under that section stating that the fund was not a complying superannuation fund in relation to:


(i) the current year of income; or

(ii) a year of income that is:

(A) later than that previous year of income; and

(B) earlier than the current year of income.

45(2)   [Previous year of income]  

Despite section 2 , the previous year mentioned in paragraph (1)(b) may be a year of income earlier than the 1994-95 year of income (see section 49 ). However, despite section 49 , if the fund was not a regulated superannuation fund at all times during the current year of income when the fund was in existence, paragraph (1)(b) does not apply unless the previous year of income is the 1994-95 year of income or a later year of income.

45(3)   [Notice deemed not given]  

For the purposes of this section, if a notice under section 40 is revoked, or the decision to give the notice is set aside, the notice is taken never to have been given.

45(4)   [Amendment of assessment]  

Section 170 of the Income Tax Assessment Act does not prevent the amendment of an assessment at any time for the purposes of giving effect to subsection (3).

45(5)   [Notice deemed given at beginning of income year]  

For the purposes of this section, if a notice under section 40 is given in relation to a fund in relation to a year of income, the notice is taken to have been given at the beginning of the year of income.

45(6)   [Exempt public sector superannuation scheme]  

Despite subsection (1), if, at all times during a year of income when a fund was in existence, the fund was, or was part of, an exempt public sector superannuation scheme, the fund is a complying superannuation fund in relation to the year of income for the purposes of the Income Tax Assessment Act.
