Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Determination TD 93/73 is withdrawn with effect from today.

1. It continues to apply to arrangements begun to be carried out before the withdrawal but does not apply to arrangements begun to be carried out after the withdrawal.

2. TD 93/73 explains that a strata title body corporate will not be taxed as a non-profit company even if it includes non-profit clauses in its by-laws as the overarching State or Territory legislation permits distributions to members in certain circumstances.

3. TD 93/73 is replaced by draft Taxation Ruling TR 2015/D1 Income tax: income tax matters relating to bodies corporate constituted under strata title legislation which issues today.
