INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997
Note: A Commissioner ' s Remedial Power (CRP 2017/2) is relevant to this part of the tax law. Taxation Administration (Remedial Power - Small Business Restructure Roll-over) Determination 2017 (F2017L01687) modifies the operation of s 40-340 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 and any other provisions of a taxation law whose operation is affected by the modified operation of s 40-340 in relation to an asset transferred under a small business restructure roll-over (item 8 of the table in s 40-340(1) ).
The operation of the relevant provisions is modified as follows:
If s 40-340 of ITAA 1997 provides for rollover relief in relation to a disposal of a depreciating asset because the condition in item 8 of the table in s 40-340(1) of ITAA 1997 is satisfied in relation to the asset, that section has effect as if it also provided that the disposal of the asset has no direct consequences under the income tax law (other than Div 40 of ITAA 1997).
The modification applies in respect of transfers on or after 8 May 2018.
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 the Taxation Administration Act 1953 to make modifications, by legislative instrument, to ensure the law is administered to achieve its intended purpose or object.
This section applies if there is roll-over relief because of subsection 40-340(1) . 40-360(2)
The transferor must give the transferee a notice containing enough information about the transferor's * holding of the property for the transferee to work out how this Division applies to the transferee's holding of the * depreciating asset. 40-360(3)
The transferor must give the notice within 6 months after the end of the transferee's income year in which the * balancing adjustment event occurred, or within a longer period allowed by the Commissioner. 40-360(4)
The transferee must keep the notice until the end of 5 years after the earlier of these events:
(a) the transferee disposes of the property;
(b) the property is lost or destroyed.
Penalty: 30 penalty units.
