BHPB Finance Limited, the Commissioner of Taxation and a perverse view


The Commissioner's argument to lift the corporate veil to treat a holding company as carrying on the business conducted by its subsidiary is dismissed as perverse. The tests for determining when an entity is carrying on a business of lending money is confirmed and the relevance of letters of comfort to an assessment of whether a debt is bad is considered. Division 243 and whether debt is non-recourse are also discussed.
