Recent amendments to the Thin Capitalisation rules in Div 820 ITAA97, to overcome complications caused by the adoption of Australian International Reporting Standards (AIFRS), have provided taxpayers with a choice in the recognition and valuation of certain internally generated intangible assets. This paper seeks to examine the choices available to taxpayers arising from the legislative changes and some of the implications where taxpayers wish to use the “safe harbour” rules.
