The Tax Institute welcomes the review of stapled structures and the opportunity to make a submission to the Treasury in relation to the Stapled Structures Consultation Paper (Consultation Paper). The Tax Institute is supportive of Treasury undertaking this review. We hope that the review achieves the outcome of providing certainty for the tax treatment of stapled structures which are critical to attracting investment, in particular foreign investment, into vital infrastructure.
