Income Tax Assessment Act 1997



Division 725 - Direct value shifting affecting interests in companies and trusts  

Subdivision 725-C - Consequences of a direct value shift  

Special cases

SECTION 725-230   Off-market buy-backs  

The consequences are different if:

(a) a decrease in the *market value of a * down interest of which you are an * affected owner is reasonably attributable to the target entity proposing to buy back that interest for less than its market value; and

(b) the target entity does buy back that down interest; and

(c) subsection 159GZZZQ(2) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 treats you as having received the down interest ' s market value worked out as if the buy-back had not occurred and was never proposed to occur.

The * adjustable value of the * down interest is not reduced, and there is no * taxing event generating a gain.


The down interest is not dealt with here because it is already dealt with in Division 16K of Part III of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 .

Also, to the extent that the * direct value shift is from the * down interest to * up interests of which you are an * affected owner, uplifts in the * adjustable value of the up interests are worked out under either or both of:

(a) item 8 of the table in subsection 725-250(2) ; and

(b) item 9 of the table in subsection 725-335(3) ;

as if the down interest were one owned by another affected owner.
