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.
With reference to Articles 6 (Income from Real Property), 7 (Business Profits), 21 (Other Income) and 22 (Source of Income) of the Convention:
It is understood that nothing in these Articles shall prevent a Contracting State from applying its domestic tax law in the case where income is derived by a resident of that Contracting State from real property situated in that Contracting State, even where such a resident carries on business in the other Contracting State through a permanent establishment situated therein and the real property is effectively connected with such permanent establishment. In this case, such income shall not be deemed to arise from sources in that other Contracting State for the purposes of applying the domestic tax law of the first-mentioned Contracting State.
