"(2) For the purposes of subsection (1), if a taxpayer receives, or becomes entitled to receive, an amount that constitutes to an unspecified extent a recoupment of, or a grant in respect of, expenditure, then so much of that amount as is reasonable is taken to be a recoupment of, or grant in respect of, that expenditure, as the case requires.
"(3) Section 170 does not prevent the amendment of an assessment at any time for the purpose of giving effect to this section.

Transactions between persons not at arm's length
"82BF. If:

Undeducted TFN amount
"221YHZP. (1) If, in relation to an eligible deferred interest investment:
(a) an amount (in this section called the 'deemed payment amount') is included in the investor's assessable income for a year of income under section 159GQ; and
(b) if subsection 221YHZA (2B) had not been enacted and if the deemed payment amount had been income paid in money by the investment body to the investor, the investment body would have been required to make a deduction (in this section called the 'notional deduction') under subsection 221YHZC (1A); and
(c) the term of the eligible deferred interest investment does not end during the year of income;
there is taken to be an undeducted TFN amount equal to the notional deduction.
"(2) Any adoption of an accounting period in lieu of a year of income is to be ignored for the purposes of:
(a) this section; and
(b) the application of Division 16E of Part III in relation to this section.

Amount of TFN withholding tax
"221YHZS. The amount of TFN withholding tax is equal to the undeducted TFN amount.

By whom TFN withholding tax is payable

(a) if the investment body in relation to the eligible deferred interest investment is an untaxable Commonwealth entity - by the investor; or
(b) in any other case - jointly and severally by the investor and the investment body.

"221YHZU. If the investment body in relation to an eligible deferred interest investment is an untaxable Commonwealth entity, the investor is taken to have authorised the investment body to pay TFN withholding tax on behalf of the investor.

Investment body may recover TFN withholding tax from investor
"221YHZV. (1) If an investment body pays TFN withholding tax, whether or not on behalf of the investor:
(a) the investor in relation to the eligible deferred interest investment is liable to pay to the investment body an amount equal to that TFN withholding tax; and
(b) the investment body may recover that amount from the investor as a debt due to the investment body.
"(2) If:
(a) an investor is liable to pay an amount (in this section called the 'TFN withholding tax amount') under subsection (1) in respect of an eligible deferred interest investment; and
(b) there is an amount (in this section called the 'investment balance') accruing to, or standing to the credit of, the investor, in relation to the eligible deferred interest investment, whether or not the investment balance is due; the investment body may:
(c) reduce the investment balance by an amount equal to the TFN withholding tax amount; or
(d) deduct or set-off an amount equal to the TFN withholding tax amount from the investment balance.
"(3) This section does not prevent an investment body from entering into an agreement or arrangement with an investor under which the investment body is entitled to recover from the investor amounts payable under subsection (1).

When TFN withholding tax payable
"221YHZW. TFN withholding tax is due and payable at the end of:
(a) 21 days after the end of the year of income (within the meaning of section 221YHZQ) to which the undeducted TFN amount relates; or
(b) such further period as the Commissioner, in special circumstances,

Back to Top

allows.

Extended operation of certain provisions of Subdivision B
"221YHZX. (1) Subsection 221YHZD (2) has effect as if a reference in that subsection to an amount payable to the Commissioner by a person by virtue of subsection 221YHZD (1A) included a reference to an amount of TFN withholding tax payable by a person.
"(2) Subsection 221YHZD (3) has effect as if a reference in that subsection to an amount payable to the Commissioner under subsection 221YHZD (1A) included a reference to an amount of TFN withholding tax payable by a person.
"(3) In addition to its effect apart from this subsection, section 221YHZK also has effect as if:
(a) in the case of an investor who has not adopted an accounting period in lieu of a year of income - an amount of TFN withholding tax paid in relation to a year of income and in relation to an eligible deferred interest investment of the investor were an amount deducted during the year of income under subsection 221YHZC (1A) from a payment to the investor; or
(b) in any other case - an amount of TFN withholding tax that was paid during a year of income of the investor and in relation to an eligible deferred interest investment of the investor were an amount deducted during the year of income under subsection 221YHZC (1A) from a payment to the investor.

Remission of TFN withholding tax - TFN exemption declarations not given

(a) TFN withholding tax is or was payable in relation to the eligible deferred interest investment; and
(b) the investor did not give the investment body concerned a declaration under Division 5 of Part VA in relation to the investment even though the investor was entitled to do so; and
(c) it would be fair and reasonable to remit the whole or a part of the TFN withholding tax, having regard to:
(i) the purposes of this Division; and
(ii) such other matters (if any) as the Commissioner thinks appropriate;
the Commissioner must remit the whole, or the part, of that amount, as the case may be.

Overpayments of TFN withholding tax
"221YHZZ. If any TFN withholding tax has been overpaid, whether as the result of a remission or for any other reason:
(a) the Commissioner must refund the amount overpaid; and
(b) the investor is not entitled to a credit under section 221YHZK in respect of the amount overpaid.

TFN withholding tax not deductible to investors
"221YHZZA. A deduction is not allowable under this Act to an investor in respect of TFN withholding tax.

Other laws do not exempt a person from TFN withholding tax
"221YHZZB. (1) A law, or a provision of a law, passed before the commencement of this subsection that purports to exempt a person from liability to pay TFN withholding tax or to pay taxes that include TFN withholding tax does not exempt that person from liability to pay TFN withholding tax.
"(2) A law, or a provision of a law, passed after the commencement of this subsection that purports to exempt a person from liability to pay taxes under the laws of the Commonwealth or to pay certain taxes under those laws that include TFN withholding tax, other than a law or a provision that expressly exempts a person from liability to pay TFN withholding tax, is not to be construed as exempting the person from liability to pay TFN withholding tax.

Subdivision to bind Crown
"221YHZZC. This Subdivision binds the Crown in the right of the Commonwealth, of each of the States, of the Australian Capital Territory, of the Northern Territory and of Norfolk Island.".
