General outline and financial impact

Amendments to the Taxation Laws Amendment Bill (No. 6) 1999

Amends item 34 of Part 3 of Schedule 1 of the Taxation Laws Amendment Bill (No.6) 1999 (TLAB 6) to:

address the technical omission from its scope of taxation agreements that are with territories, rather than countries; and,
ensure that the original amendments concerning income from spectrum licences derived through a permanent establishment apply in relation to taxation agreements generally, whether they have entered into force before the amending provisions of TLAB 6, or do so later.

Date of effect: The amendment does not affect the date of effect of the TLAB6 spectrum measures.

Cost of compliance impact: The compliance cost is expected to be minimum minimal since the amendment would reflect licence conditions attached to the spectrum licence.

Impact: Low

Main points: The amendment does not change the regulation impact statement (RIS) contained in the explanatory memorandum (EM) to TLAB 6.

Policy Objective: The amendment does not change the RIS contained in the EM to TLAB 6.
