This paper explores the potential tax issues that arise from the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Green Paper (the Green Paper). Although the Green Paper does not present a settled policy position in a number of key areas, including the taxation issues, it does present advisers and in-house tax professionals with the Government’s current thinking about the regulatory scheme and, in particular, the likely taxation rules under the scheme.
