Income Tax Assessment Act 1997
If the company issues a *non-share equity interest in the company on or after 1 July 2001, there is a credit to the *non-share capital account equal to:
Amount received − Share capital account credit
The issue of a non-share equity interest can give rise to a credit to the company ' s share capital account if the interest consists, for example, of a stapled security that includes a share in the company ' s capital.
If paragraph 164-10(1)(c), (d) or (e) applies in relation to a particular interest in the company, there is a credit to the *non-share capital account at the change time referred to in that paragraph of an amount equal to:
|Amount received||−||Share capital account credit||−||Amount returned|
If the company has a *non-share capital account at the beginning of 1 July 2001 because of a *non-share equity interest the company issued before 1 July 2001, there is a credit to the non-share capital account on that day for each non-share equity interest in the company that:
(a) was issued before 1 July 2001; and
(b) is still in existence on 1 July 2001. 164-15(4)
The amount of the credit under subsection (3) is:
Amount received − Return of amount received − Share capital account credit
To avoid doubt, if:
(a) it appears that a credit to the company ' s *non-share capital account has arisen under this section because an interest in the company appears to be, or have become, an *equity interest at a time in a particular income year; and
(b) because subsection 974-75(6) or 974-110(1A) is subsequently found to apply in relation to the interest and that income year, the interest was not in fact, or did not in fact become, an equity interest at that time;
the credit referred to in paragraph (a) is taken never to have arisen.
