INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1936 (ARCHIVE)
A taxpayer who as a beneficiary of a widely held trust has held an interest in shares contained in the trust holding (within the meaning of subsection 160APHL(4) ) of the widely held trust is a qualified person in relation to a dividend paid on any of the shares to which a distribution from the trust to the taxpayer is attributable if:
(a) where neither the taxpayer nor an associate of the taxpayer has made, is under an obligation to make, or is likely to make, a related payment in respect of the distribution - during the primary qualification period in relation to the taxpayer in relation to the interest; or
(b) where the taxpayer or an associate of the taxpayer has made, is under an obligation to make, or is likely to make, a related payment in respect of the distribution - during the secondary qualification period in relation to the taxpayer in relation to the interest;
the taxpayer has held an interest in the shares contained in the trust holding as a beneficiary of the trust for a continuous period (not counting the day on which the taxpayer acquired the interest or, if the taxpayer has disposed of the interest, the day on which the disposal occurred) of not less than 45 days.160APHP(2) [Calculating days interest held]
In calculating the number of days for which the taxpayer continuously held the interest, any days on which the taxpayer has materially diminished risks of loss or opportunities for gain in respect of the interest are to be excluded, but the exclusion of those days is not taken to break the continuity of the period for which the taxpayer held the interest.
