Following the decision of the Full Federal Court in Hance v. FCT; Hannebery v. FCT  FCAFC 196; 2008 ATC 20-085 (19 December 2008), and as foreshadowed in the Decision Impact Statement dealing with that case, the ATO has now withdrawn Taxation Ruling TR 2007/8 (Income tax: registered agricultural managed investment schemes) and GST Ruling GSTR 2008/D1 (Goods and services tax: registered agricultural managed investment schemes) with effect from 11 February 2009.
The ATO has also issued an Addendum to Product Ruling PR 2007/71 (The Product Rulings System), deleting that part of the Ruling which indicates that a Product Ruling will ordinarily not be issued for schemes that will begin to be carried out after 30 June 2008, where the scheme is an agricultural managed investment scheme.
