SECTION 276-415   Trustee taxed on amounts of determined trust component that are not reflected in determined member components  

An *AMIT has a shortfall under this subsection for an income year equal to the amount (if any) by which:

(a) the sum of all the *determined member components of all the *members of the AMIT of a particular character relating to assessable income, *exempt income or *non-assessable non-exempt income for the income year;

falls short of:

(b) the *determined trust component of that character of the AMIT for the income year.

Liability to tax

The trustee is liable to pay income tax at the rate declared by the Parliament on the amount worked out as follows:

(a) first, work out the sum of each shortfall of the *AMIT under subsection (1) for the income year;

(b) next, work out the extent (if any) to which each of those shortfalls gives rise to a *rounding adjustment deficit (see subsection 276-310(2) );

(c) next, subtract the result of paragraph (b) from the result of paragraph (a);

(d) next, work out the extent (if any) to which the result of paragraph (c) is referable to one or more shortfalls under subsection 276-405(1) ;

(e) next, subtract the result of paragraph (d) from the result of paragraph (c).


The rate is set out in subsection 12(12) of the Income Tax Rates Act 1986 .

Gross-up for discount capital gain

Subsection (4) applies if a *determined member component is of the character of:

(a) a *discount capital gain from a *CGT asset that is *taxable Australian property; or

(b) a discount capital gain from a CGT asset that is not taxable Australian property.


For the purposes of subsection (2), treat the amount of the shortfall under subsection (1) relating to the component as being double what it would be apart from this subsection.
