Australia's Controlled Foreign Company regime is aimed at the accruals taxation of certain income derived by foreign companies. Ordinarily, certain interest income and income and gains derived in respect of financial instruments would be taxed on an accruals basis under this regime.

This article examines the mechanisms of these exemptions and outlines a proposal for reform of these exemptions.
