To avoid doubt, an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporation is taken to be a corporation for the purposes of this Act.

Note: Various provisions of this Act that generally apply to corporations do not apply to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations because of express provisions to that effect: see section 190B, subsection 197(5), section 206HB and subsections 599(2), 1309(6), 1318(5) and 1335(3).

[CCH Note: Regulation 10.25.02(3)(e) (which was effective 1 March 2017) provides that the amendments made by No 11 of 2016, s 3, Sch 2[82] apply in relation to external administrations on and after 1 September 2017.]
