Ch 2 title inserted by No 73 of 2006 , s 3 and Sch 5 item 40, effective 1 July 2006.
Div 12 (except s 12-190 ) applies to a payment made on or after 1 July 2000.
Note: A Commissioner ' s Remedial Power modification is relevant to this part of the tax law.
Taxation Administration (Remedial Power - Seasonal Labour Mobility Program) Determination 2020 (F2020L01474) modifies the operation of s 840-905(b)(ii) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997) and s 12-319A(b)(ii) of Sch 1 to the Taxation Administration Act 1953 (TAA 1953) to include foreign resident employees of Approved Employers under the Seasonal Labour Mobility Program ( " employees under the Program " ) who previously held a Temporary Work (International Relations) Visa (subclass 403) and have extended their stay in Australia using a different temporary visa (including a bridging visa) granted under the Migration Act 1958 .
The operation of the relevant provisions is modified as follows:
The modification applies to salary, wages, commissions, bonuses or allowances paid on and after 24 March 2020. The modification ensures that employees under the Program continue to be taxed by application of a final withholding tax rate of 15%. It also ensures that this income is otherwise treated as non-assessable non-exempt income. As is currently the case for those holding a Temporary Work (International Relations) Visa (subclass 403), these employees under the Program will not have to lodge an income tax return unless they earn other Australian sourced income.
An entity must treat a modification as not applying to it or any other entity if the modification would produce a less favourable result for it. The Commissioner is empowered by s 370-5 of Sch 1 to TAA 1953 to make modifications, by legislative instrument, to ensure the law is administered to achieve its intended purpose or object.
Subdiv 12-FAA inserted by No 9 of 2007 , s 3 and Sch 1 item 20, applicable on and after 1 July 2007.
This Subdivision does not require an entity:
(a) to withhold an amount from an *excess untaxed roll-over amount if no *withholding tax is payable on the amount; or
(b) to withhold from an excess untaxed roll-over amount more than the withholding tax payable on the amount (reduced by each amount already withheld from the excess untaxed roll-over amount under this Subdivision).
Section 306-15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 deals with liability to this form of withholding tax.
S 12-313 inserted by No 9 of 2007 , s 3 and Sch 1 item 20, applicable on and after 1 July 2007.
