Income Tax Assessment Act 1997



Division 166 - Income tax consequences of changing ownership or control of a widely held or eligible Division 166 company  

SECTION 166-1   What this Division is about  

This Division modifies the way the rules in Division 165 apply to a widely held or eligible Division 166 company by making it easier for the company to apply the rules.

If the company has maintained the same owners as between certain points of time, it does not need to prove it has maintained the same owners throughout the periods in between.

In certain cases, special concessional tracing rules deem entities to hold voting, dividend or capital stakes in the company so that the company does not have to trace through to the ultimate beneficial owners of the stakes.
