TAXATION ADMINISTRATION ACT 1953
Note: See section 3AA .Chapter 2 - Collection, recovery and administration of income tax
Note: A Commissioner ' s Remedial Power (CRP 2017/1) is relevant to this part of the tax law. Taxation Administration (Remedial Power - Foreign Resident Capital Gains Withholding) Determination 2017 (F2017L00992) modifies the operation of s 18-15 , 18-20 and 18-25 in Sch 1 to the Taxation Administration Act 1953 as follows:
To the extent that an entity ' s entitlement to a credit referred to in s 18-15 , 18-20 or 18-25 in Sch 1 to TAA is in respect of an amount paid to the Commissioner under Subdiv 14-D of Sch 1 to TAA, treat the entitlement as arising in the income year in which the transaction causing that application of Subdiv 14-D is recognised for income tax purposes for the entity. The modification applies in respect of transactions entered into on or after 1 July 2016.
An entity must treat a modification as not applying to it or any other entity if the modification would produce a less favourable result for it. The Commissioner is empowered by s 370-5 of Sch 1 to TAA to make modifications, by legislative instrument, to ensure the law is administered to achieve its intended purpose or object.
An entity is entitled to a credit in respect of *amounts withheld from *withholding payments made to a partnership during an income year if:
(a) the entity has an individual interest in the net income or partnership loss of the partnership for that income year that is wholly or partly attributable to those withholding payments; and
(b) the *income tax return of the partnership for the income year has been lodged with the Commissioner; and
(c) an assessment has been made of the income tax payable, or an assessment has been made that no income tax is payable, by the entity for the income year.
The amount of the credit is worked out using the formula:
|Amounts withheld ×||
Net income/partnership loss
