1          Name of Rules

 

These Rules are the ACIS Administration (determination of Entitlement to Modulation Credit between Participants) Rules 2004.

 

2          Commencement

 

These Rules commence on the date of their notification in the Gazette.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3          Object

 

The object of these Rules is to identify, if more than 1 participant is involved in a transaction giving rise to the issue of:

(a)    modulated credit; or

(b)   unmodulated uncapped production credit; or

(c)    unmodulated type J investment credit;

which participant is entitled to that credit.

 

Note   If the Regulations make it clear that only 1 participant involved in a transaction is entitled to claim the credit, there is no need to use these Rules.  For example, under subregulation 13G of the Regulations, an ACIS participant that is not a motor vehicle producer cannot claim credits for research and development undertaken under a contract with another party.

 

4          Definition

 

In these Rules:

 

Regulations means the ACIS Administration Regulations 2000.

 

5          Identifying the participant to whom the credit will be issued

 

(1)  The Secretary may require each participant involved in a transaction referred to in section 3:

 

(a)              to identify which of the participants is or are entitled to the credit arising from the transaction; and

(b)              if more than 1 participant is entitled to the credit – to identify the participant to which the credit should be issued.

 

(2)  If:

(a)              the participants identify only 1 participant as entitled to the credit; and

(b)              that participant meets the requirements of the Regulations in relation to the transaction;

the credit must be issued to that participant.

 

(3)  If:

(a)              the participants identify more than 1 participant as entitled to the credit; and

(b)              each participant identifies the same participant to which the credit should be issued; and

(c)              that participant meets the requirements of the Regulations in relation to the transaction;

the credit must be issued to that participant.

 

(4)  The Secretary may identify 1 participant, who meets the requirements of the Regulations in relation to the transaction, if:

(a)              not all the participants identify a participant that is entitled to the credit; or

(b)              the participants:

(i)         identify more than 1 participant as entitled to the credit arising from the transaction; and

(ii)        identify more than 1 participant to which the credit should be issued;

and the credit must be issued to that participant.

 

6          If more than 1 participant is entitled to the credit

 

If a credit arises from a transaction mentioned in section 3 and more than     1 participant involved in the transaction is entitled to the credit, the credit must not be issued until:

(a)        each participant identifies:

(i)         the participants that are entitled to be issued with    the credit; and

(ii)        the single participant to whom the credit should be issued; or

(b)               a participant has been identified under subsection 5 (4).

 

Note   Under subsection 10 (1) of the Act, the credit is to be paid to 1 participant only.  However, for example, a joint venture between 2 motor vehicle producers could result in a transaction in which more that 1 participant is entitled to the credit.
