Pages: pp. 1227


The Exposure Draft Bill: Loss Recoupment Rules for Companies was released on 11 February 2005: see 2005 WTB 7 [246]. This legislation is designed to simplify the continuity of ownership test for widely held companies and repeal the ability to rely on the same business test for the recoupment of losses incurred for income years beginning after 30 June 2005 for companies and consolidated groups with an annual turnover exceeding $100m.

Following comments, received through the consultative process, Treasury is reworking parts of the draft legislation, and will seek comments on the revised draft. The aim is to have the legislation finalised for introduction into Parliament in August 2005.
