160APHN(2)  [Passing the benefit to a person]  


The taxpayer or associate is taken, for the purposes of this Division, to have made, to be under an obligation to make, or to be likely to make, a related payment in respect of the dividend or distribution if, under an arrangement, the taxpayer or associate has done, is under an obligation to do, or may reasonably be expected to do, as the case may be, anything having the effect of passing the benefit of the dividend or distribution to one or more other persons.

160APHN(3)  [Acts that pass the benefit]  


Without limiting subsection (2), the doing of any of the following by the taxpayer or an associate of the taxpayer in the circumstances mentioned in subsection (4) may have the effect of passing the benefit of the dividend or distribution to one or more other persons:

(b) causing an amount or amounts to be credited to, or applied for the benefit of, the other person or other persons; or

(d) causing property to be transferred to, or in accordance with the directions of, the other person or other persons; or


(e) allowing any property or money to be used by the other person or other persons or by someone nominated by the other person or other persons; or


(f) causing an amount or amounts to be set off against, or to be otherwise applied in reduction of, a debt or debts owed by the other person or other persons to the taxpayer or associate; or

(f) is calculated by reference to;

the amount of the dividend or distribution.

If an amount is taken into account in any way in favour of, or is notionally accredited to, a person in fixing a price or value, or in determining another amount, the first-mentioned amount is taken, for the purposes of this section, to be credited to the other person.
