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.
