Recorded Webinar: Streaming Income through Trusts after Thomas’s Case


Wednesday 20th September 2017
Duration:  approx. 2 hours

Streaming rules are important for tax planning but the rules are complex. There have been developments in the ATO’s approach to trusts and streaming that impact trust administration and practice. But the really big news is the Full Federal Court decision of Thomas – the first judicial commentary on the streaming provisions.  This session gives a practical focus to the main issues following Thomas:

  • Thomas’s case explained
  • What the Court said about the streaming provisions
  • Effective streaming of capital gains and franked distributions
  • What if the trust deed says nothing about streaming?  What should the deed say about streaming?
  • Definition of income in the deed – what should it say?
  • If trustee makes a discount capital gain can the trustee stream exempt and taxable component?
  • Discount and non-discount capital gains - can the latter be streamed to a corporate beneficiary?
  • Can you stream unrealised capital gains – Fisher v Nemeske?
  • Ensuring expenses offset against streamed amount
