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.
If there is an *amount withheld from a *withholding payment that is covered by section 12-305 (departing Australia superannuation payment), the entity liable to pay *withholding tax under section 301-175 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 on the payment is entitled to a credit of an amount equal to the amount withheld.
If an entity has paid to the Commissioner a penalty amount under section 16-30 or 16-35 in relation to an *amount required to be withheld under section 12-305 (departing Australia superannuation payment), the entity mentioned in subsection (1) is entitled to a credit equal to the penalty amount.
If the Commissioner remits the whole or a part of the amount of penalty under section 298-20 that has been paid to the Commissioner by the entity:
(a) any credit that relates to the amount is reduced by the amount that is remitted; and
(b) the Commissioner must pay to the entity an amount equal to the amount that is remitted.
