Division 394 - Forestry managed investment schemes  

SECTION 394-5  

394-5   Object of this Division  

The object of this Division is to encourage the expansion of commercial plantation forestry in Australia through the establishment and tending of new plantations for felling. This is achieved by:

(a) permitting investors to deduct amounts paid under a forestry scheme in the year of payment, if certain conditions are met (for example, that it is reasonable to expect that the manager of the scheme will spend at least 70% of investors' contributions, on a market value basis, on activities that establish, tend, fell and harvest trees); and

(b) allowing secondary market trading of interests in such schemes, while minimising tax arbitrage and providing tax certainty for investors.
