Chilean Convention  

CONVENTION BETWEEN AUSTRALIA AND THE REPUBLIC OF CHILE FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBLE TAXATION WITH RESPECT TO TAXES ON INCOME AND FRINGE BENEFITS AND THE PREVENTION OF FISCAL EVASION  

CHAPTER V - SPECIAL PROVISIONS  

ARTICLE 27   Limitations of Benefits  

1.  
The provisions of Articles 10, 11 and 12 shall not apply if it was the main purpose or one of the main purposes of any person concerned with the assignment of dividends, interest or royalties or with the creation or assignment of a right or debt-claim in respect of which dividends, interest or royalties are paid to take advantage of those Articles by means of that creation or assignment.

2.  
Considering that the main aim of the Convention is to avoid international double taxation, the Contracting States agree that, in the event the provisions of the Convention are used in such a manner as to provide benefits not contemplated or not intended, relevant authorities of the Contracting States shall consult in an expeditious manner with a view to recommending specific amendments to be made to the Convention.

3.  
Where under this Convention any income, profits or gains are relieved from tax in Chile and, under the law in force in Australia, an individual in respect of that income or those profits or gains is exempt from tax by virtue of being a temporary resident of Australia within the meaning of the applicable tax laws of Australia, then the relief to be allowed under this Convention in Chile shall not apply to the extent that that income or those profits or gains are exempt from tax in Australia.
