Publication date: 26 Jul 06 | Source: TAX NOTES INTERNATIONAL

Issue: Vol. 43 no. 3 2006

Pages: pp.203-204


Draft elgislation abolishing the Australian nonresident capital gains tax for most foreign investors has been submitted to the Australian Parliament. Under the proposed rules, a capital gain or loss made by a foreign resident would be subject to CGT only if it relates to assets that are "taxable Australian property".

Currently, nonresidents are taxed on a broad range of Australian assets, including shares in private companies and interests in trusts.
