Getting trust distributions right after Cajkusic presentation

Published on 25 Sep 08

Note: This presentation was also presented at the Darwin Seminar on 28 November 2008. 

This presentation covers issues such as:

  •  the concepts of "net income", "income of the trust estate" and "distributable net income"
  • the meaning of Gleeson CJ's obiter in the ANZ Savings Bank case and whether the Cajkusic interpretation is correct
  • the various kinds of income clauses in trust deeds - (a) accounting income, (b) section 95 income and (c) income as determined by the trustee - and the effect of those formulations on tax liability
  • detailed examples of trust distributions involving capital gains, franked dividends, exempt income, rental income, disallowed deductions, and other mismatches between trust income and section 95 income.
