AUSTRALIAN TAX TREATIES
The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (the MLI) has modified the application of this tax treaty. A synthesised text of the MLI and this tax treaty is available to facilitate the understanding of how the MLI modifies this tax treaty.
Notwithstanding the provisions of Articles 7 and 14, income derived by a resident of a Contracting State as an entertainer, such as a theatre, motion picture, radio or television artiste, or a musician, or as a sportsperson, from that person ' s personal activities as such exercised in the other Contracting State, may be taxed in that other State. 2.
Where income in respect of personal activities exercised by an entertainer or a sportsperson in that person ' s capacity as such accrues not to the entertainer or sportsperson but to another person, that income may, notwithstanding the provisions of Articles 7 and 14, be taxed in the Contracting State in which the activities of the entertainer or sportsperson are exercised. 3.
The provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 shall not apply to the income derived in respect of personal activities exercised by a sportsperson as a member of a recognised team regularly playing in a league competition organised and conducted in both Contracting States, except in respect of performance as a member of a national representative team of either Contracting State. In such case the provisions of Article 7 or 14, as the case may be, shall apply.
