Recent announcements from both Treasury and the Australian Taxation Office evidences a “get serious” approach to both the reach and interpretation by the authorities of the deemed dividend rules contained in Div 7A ITAA 1936.
The May 2009 Budget broadened the Division in the interests of “fairness and equity”. This, coupled with the
recent draft ruling on Unpaid Present Entitlements, has indicated a new look at the provisions is required.
This event dealt with these developments from an accounting and legal perspective.
