Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Determination TD 1999/25 is withdrawn with effect from today.

1. TD 1999/25 explains that subsection 128F(8) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (ITAA 1936) provides that debentures issued through certain non-resident subsidiaries are eligible for exemption from withholding tax, provided the subsidiary raises finance in a country specified in the regulations. The only country listed in the regulations was the United States of America. However, the ruling also stated that the Commissioner would consider submissions for other countries to be added.

2. TD 1999/25 is being withdrawn as paragraph 128F(8)(c) of the ITAA 1936 has been amended to contain the words 'in the United States of America or in another country'.

3. TD 1999/25 has no ongoing relevance and is therefore withdrawn without replacement.
