13 Nov 14 Debt and equity: funding through connected entities - TD 2014/D18

On 12 November 2014, the ATO released for public comment by 12 December 2014 draft Taxation Determination TD 2014/D18 entitled "Income tax: will paragraph 974-80(1)(d) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 be satisfied merely because a non-resident entity has chosen to invest indirectly in a debt interest issued by an Australian resident company and there is one or more equity interests interposed between the non-resident entity and the entity holding the debt interest?"

The answer given to the question posed is as follows:

"No. The fact that a non-resident entity has decided to invest indirectly in an Australian resident company through one or more interposed entities and the final leg in the chain is a debt interest will not of itself be sufficient to form a conclusion under paragraph 974-80(1)(d)1 that there is a scheme, or a series of schemes, designed to operate so that the returns on the debt interest are used to fund returns on an equity interest held by another person (the 'ultimate recipient')."
