Special Tax & Superannuation topics 2022-23 - Gaslit: Trust Distributions in 2022

This session is an intensive review of section 100A, including: 

  • Consideration of the original government intent when section 100A was introduced into Parliament in contrast to the current ATO interpretation of the section;
  • Reviewing the ATO media releases in 2014 and 2022, together with other comments between those years, to show the ATO has never really changed its view on section 100A
  • Case studies on common discretionary trust scenarios to illustrate potential risks under section 100A and/or Part IVA and those which are relatively risk-free.
This session was recorded on the 26th August 2022


Upon successful completion of this subject, participants will: 

  • Understand the relationship between section 100A, other sections of the ITAA and Part IVA 
  • Understand the 2022 ATO media release on section 100A in light of previous ATO comments, including the “2014 position” statement.  
  • Develop a plan for section 100A and Part IVA for 2023 trust distributions and beyond.
