Pages: pp. 56-57
The ATO has turned to unpaid present entitlements with its treatment of payment and a two-tier trust structure. The ATO has made it clear that its focus on UPEs has been triggered by the discovery of the practice of a trustee allowing private use of lifestyle assets where there is a UPE. The government's response was to make two Division 7A amendments, which apply from 1 July and are now live issues for many private company shareholders and their advisers. An effective strategy needs to be in place, and executed, by 30 June 2010; it is too late to deal with the issues when preparing the income tax return.
