If the company is incorporated under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 , subsection (2) applies in relation to rights as a *member of the company in the same way as that subsection applies to *shares in a company.
This section does not apply to demutualisation of a body if Division 326 in Schedule 2H to the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 applies to the demutualisation.
That Division deals with demutualisation of entities other than insurance companies and health insurers.
