Developments in the tax treatment of financial arrangements

Author(s):  John MURRAY

On 16 December 2005 the Howard Government released its proposals to determine the timing for taxation purposes of certain financial arrangements. Unfortunately, the raft of rules is not complete.The rules certainly go further than govern the tax timing of financial arrangements and the purpose of this paper is to provide an outline of what the Government has proposed, comment on some aspects of the proposals and highlight some of the primary areas on which the writer believes tax people need to focus as players in the resources industry.
