SECTION 295-550   Meaning of non-arm's length income  

295-550(1)  
An amount of *ordinary income or *statutory income is non-arm's length income of a *complying superannuation fund, a *complying approved deposit fund or a *pooled superannuation trust (other than an amount to which subsection (2) applies or an amount *derived by the entity in the capacity of beneficiary of a trust) if:


(a) it is derived from a *scheme the parties to which were not dealing with each other at *arm's length in relation to the scheme; and


(b) that amount is more than the amount that the entity might have been expected to derive if those parties had been dealing with each other at arm's length in relation to the scheme.

295-550(2)  
An amount of *ordinary income or *statutory income is also non-arm's length income of the entity if it is:


(a) a *dividend paid to the entity by a *private company; or


(b) ordinary income or statutory income that is reasonably attributable to such a dividend;

unless the amount is consistent with an *arm's length dealing.

295-550(3)  
In deciding whether an amount is consistent with an *arm's length dealing under subsection (2), have regard to:


(a) the value of *shares in the company that are assets of the entity; and


(b) the cost to the entity of the shares on which the *dividend was paid; and


(c) the rate of that dividend; and


(d) whether the company has paid a dividend on other shares in the company and, if so, the rate of that dividend; and


(e) whether the company has issued any shares to the entity in satisfaction of a dividend paid by the company (or part of it) and, if so, the circumstances of the issue; and


(f) any other relevant matters.

295-550(4)  
Income *derived by the entity as a beneficiary of a trust, other than because of holding a fixed entitlement to the income, is non-arm's length income of the entity.

295-550(5)  
Other income *derived by the entity as a beneficiary of a trust through holding a fixed entitlement to the income of the trust is non-arm's length income of the entity if:


(a) the entity acquired the entitlement under a *scheme, or the income was derived under a scheme, the parties to which were not dealing with each other at *arm's length; and


(b) the amount of the income is more than the amount that the entity might have been expected to derive if those parties had been dealing with each other at arm's length.

295-550(6)  
This section:


(a) applies to a *non-share equity interest in the same way as it applies to a *share; and


(b) applies to an *equity holder in a company in the same way as it applies to a shareholder in the company; and


(c) applies to a *non-share dividend in the same way as it applies to a *dividend.
