SECTION 160APHO  PERSONS QUALIFIED BY HOLDING SHARES OR INTERESTS IN SHARES FOR A PRESCRIBED NUMBER OF DAYS DURING A QUALIFICATION PERIOD  

160APHO(1)  [``qualified person'']  


A taxpayer who has held shares or an interest in shares on which a dividend has been paid is a qualified person in relation to the dividend if:


(a) where neither the taxpayer nor an associate of the taxpayer has made, is under an obligation to make, or is likely to make, a related payment in respect of the dividend - the taxpayer has satisfied subsection (2) in relation to the primary qualification period in relation to the dividend; or


(b) where the taxpayer or an associate of a taxpayer has made, is under an obligation to make, or is likely to make, a related payment in respect of the dividend - the taxpayer has satisfied subsection (2) in relation to the secondary qualification period in relation to the dividend.

160APHO(2)  [Qualification period]  


A taxpayer who has held shares or an interest in shares on which a dividend has been paid satisfies this subsection in relation to a qualification period in relation to the shares or interest if, during the period:


(a) where the taxpayer held the shares - the taxpayer held the shares for a continuous period (not counting the day on which the taxpayer acquired the shares or, if the taxpayer has disposed of the shares, the day on which the disposal occurred) of not less than:


(i) if the shares are not preference shares - 45 days; or

(ii) if the shares are preference shares - 90 days; or


(b) where the taxpayer held the interest in the shares - the taxpayer held the interest for a continuous period (not counting the day on which the taxpayer acquired the interest or, if the taxpayer has disposed of the interest, the day on which the disposal occurred) of not less than:


(i) if the shares are not preference shares - 45 days; or

(ii) if the shares are preference shares - 90 days.

160APHO(3)  [Calculating days shares or interest held]  


In calculating the number of days for which the taxpayer continuously held the shares or interest, any days on which the taxpayer has materially diminished risks of loss or opportunities for gain in respect of the shares or interest are to be excluded, but the exclusion of those days is not taken to break the continuity of the period for which the taxpayer held the shares or interest.

160APHO(4)  [Beneficiary of widely held trust]  


This section does not apply to a taxpayer in respect of an interest in shares held by the taxpayer as a beneficiary of a widely held trust.
