Income Tax Assessment Act 1936
This section applies to a deduction under section 290-60 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 in respect of a contribution made in relation to a person who was an employee of a prescribed excluded STB when it ceased to be an STB.
A deduction to which this section applies is not allowable to the body for any year of income unless the requirements of subsections (3) and (4) are complied with.24AYA(3) [ Actuarial certificate required]
For the deduction to be allowable, the body must obtain a certificate by an authorised actuary stating the actuarial value, as at the time the body ceases to be an STB, of liabilities of the STB to provide superannuation benefits for, or for SIS dependants of, employees of the body, where the liabilities:
(a) accrued after 30 June 1995 and before the time when the body ceased to be an STB; and
(b) were, according to actuarial principles, unfunded at that time.
The certificate must be in a form approved in writing by the Commissioner. The body must obtain the certificate:
(a) before the date of lodgment of its return of income of the year of income in which the body ceased to be an STB; or
(b) within such further time as the Commissioner allows. 24AYA(5) [ Deductions less than or equal to unfunded liability limit]
If the body obtains the certificate, a deduction to which this section applies is nevertheless not allowable for a year of income if the sum of all deductions to which this section applies for the year of income is less than or equal to the unfunded liability limit (see subsection (6)) for the year of income.24AYA(6) [ Deductions greater than unfunded liability limit]
If the sum is greater than that limit, so much of the deduction as is worked out using the following formula is not allowable:

section applies for the year of income
