Issue: Issue 31 2006
The latest instalment in the government's reform of the taxation of financial arangements (TOFA) will effect the biggest change in the way we calculate taxable income since the introduction of capital gains tax.
This soon to be introduced instalment - currently drafted as Div 230 of ITAA 1997, and contained in an exposure draft issued by the Assistant Treasurer last December - is said to use a "coherent principles" approach which will "improve a complex area of the taxation law" and in so doing give Australia 'the edge".
