AUSTRALIAN TAX TREATIES
Profits from the operation of ships or aircraft derived by a resident of one of the Contracting States shall be taxable only in that State. (2)
Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (1), such profits may be taxed in the other Contracting State where:
(a) they are profits from operations of ships or aircraft confined solely to places in that other State; or
(b) they are profits, other than profits to which subparagraph (a) applies, from operations of ships in that other State, in which case the tax payable in that other State shall not exceed the lesser of:
(i) half the amount which would be payable in respect of those profits but for this subparagraph; and
(ii) the lowest amount, if any, of Sri Lanka tax that may be imposed on profits of the same kind derived under similar circumstances by a resident of a third State.
The provisions of paragraphs (1) and (2) shall apply in relation to the share of the profits from the operation of ships or aircraft derived by a resident of one of the Contracting States through participation in a pool service, in a joint transport operating organisation or in an international operating agency. (4)
For the purposes of this Article, profits derived from the carriage by ships or aircraft of passengers, livestock, mail, goods or merchandise shipped in a Contracting State for discharge at another place in that State shall be treated as profits from operations of ships or aircraft confined solely to places in that State.
