Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Ruling TR 2006/4 is withdrawn with effect from today.

1. Taxation Ruling TR 2006/4 explains the circumstances in which the beneficiaries and terms of two trusts are the same for the purpose of the exceptions in paragraphs 104-55(5)(b) and 104-60(5)(b) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997. These paragraphs provide an exception to CGT event E1 and E2 respectively. Essentially, those events do not happen if an asset is transferred between two trusts with the same beneficiaries and terms. They are commonly referred to as the 'trust cloning' exceptions.

2. However, those exceptions have been repealed by Tax Laws Amendment (2009 Measures No. 6) Act 2010. As a result, they are no longer available for CGT events happening on or after 1 November 2008.

3. As TR 2006/4 is no longer current, it is withdrawn.
