Changes to the eligible investment business rules.

Publication date: 16 Oct 08 | Source: CCH TAX WEEK

Issue: Issue 40 2008

Pages: pp.1-6

The proposed changes to the eligible investment business rules contained in Sch 5 of the Tax Laws Amendment (2008 Measures No 5) Bill 2008 are a consequence of the federal Government's 2008 Budget announcement in respect of managed funds. The changes are intended to modernise and streamline the rules in Div 6C of ITAA 1936 that can operate to classify certain widely held trusts as trading trusts with the consequence that they are generally treated like companies for income tax purposes.
