Loans from trusts to related parties can have significant taxation implications. They need to be monitored and reviewed in terms of the potential application of Division 7A, the debt forgiveness provisions and even Part IVA. Also there are a multitude of difficulties that have to be managed when trusts are varied or re-organised. This case study takes a practical look at the most significant issues to be aware of. Topics include:
Division 7A: Section 109XA-XC
traps for the unwary applying section 109 XB
debt forgiveness and debt /equity provisions
interest deductibility issues
what is a resettlement?
must a resettlement create an adverse capital gain result?
recent cases and Commissioner's statements.
