Ever since tax consolidation came into effect on 1 July 2002, there has been considerable difficulty in applying consolidation principles such as the entry history rule and the single entity rule to existing tax laws. In many cases, the laws were incompatible with each other and led to outcomes that were clearly contrary to what Parliament originally intended. This has lead to a number of Australian Taxation Office rulings, determinations and interpretive decisions. It has also led to a myriad of amendments to the consolidation legislation.
