The Australian Parliament has passed new legislation that exposes the promoters of tax shelters to the same kinds of penalties that their clients face when the promoters' claims turn out to be incorrect.

The promoter penalty regime applies to relevant conduct engaged in on or after April 6, 2006, the date on which the Bill received Royal Assent - including any conduct after that date in relation to existing products and arrangements already in the market.
