Exposure Draft Tax Laws Amendment (Foreign Source Income Deferral) Bill (No. 1) 2010

Date:

Friday, 18 December 2009

Content ID:

1699

Abstract:

On 18 December 2009, the Assistant Treasurer released for public consultation the exposure draft legislation that will give effect to the decision to repeal the foreign investment fund (FIF) and deemed present entitlement (DPE) rules.

The repeal of the FIF and the DPE rules was announced in the 2009-10 Budget as part of wider reforms to Australia's foreign source income anti-tax-deferral (attribution) rules.

Remaining reforms to the controlled foreign company, transferor trust rules and the anti-roll-up rule are still being developed.
