Tax consolidation: proposed changes mean it's time for business to take action.

Publication date: 04 May 12 | Source: WEEKLY TAX BULLETIN

Issue: Issue 17, 27 April 2012


On 18 April 2012, the Assistant Treasurer released an exposure draft (ED) of the law to implement changes to the tax consolidation rules announced by the Government in 2011. The changes will alter tax consolidation in relation to:

  • Tax outcomes relating to rights to future income (RFI) and various revenue assets.
  • Interaction with the Taxation of Financial Arrangements (TOFA) rules.

The ED addresses Government concerns that the 2010 amendments to the tax consolidation RFI and revenue asset rules resulted in outcomes and revenue costs not anticipated by the Government. The changes repeal the relevant 2010 amendments and replace them with 3 sets of rules, depending on the time when entities joined consolidated groups.

The changes affect mergers, acquisitions and restructure arrangements, as well as prior year positions.
