Article: Navigating the complexities of section 100A: a look at the future of trust taxation in Australia
Charles Ho Wang Mak (Robert Gordon University Law School) recently published an Article, Navigating the complexities of section 100A: a look at the future of trust taxation in Australia, Trusts & Trustees, 2023. Provided below is an abstract:
Section 100A of the Income Tax Assessment Act of 1936 is a provision designed to prevent arrangements in which a distribution is made to a beneficiary with a low tax rate, yet, the economic benefit is conveyed or paid to a second beneficiary with a higher tax rate. The Australian Taxation Office provided its final guidance on this provision very recently. This article provides an overview of the guidance, analyses cases regarding the application of Section 100A, and assesses the guidance’s potential future implications on trust taxation in Australia.
