Abstract:
Draft Taxation Ruling TR 2009/D8 (Income tax: Division 7A loans: trust entitlements) includes the assertion that an unpaid present entitlement payable by the trustee of a trust in favour of a corporate beneficiary could, in appropriate circumstances, either constitute a loan or be taken to be a loan back to the trustee of the trust for the purposes of Div 7A.
