Recent developments have confirmed the critical importance of trustees properly considering which beneficiaries should receive distributions and how those distribution entitlements are satisfied.
Recent court cases and ATO guidance products present additional challenges for trustees when considering how to distribute trust income.
The Full Federal Court has handed down its decision in FCT v Guardian AIT Pty Ltd  FCAFC 3 (“Guardian”) which considered the application of anti-avoidance rules to trust distributions to a corporate beneficiary.
The ATO has finalised draft guidance on the application of section 100A to trust entitlements, staying close to the original released earlier this year. The finalisation comes despite two cases (both for and against the Commissioner) currently on appeal to the Full Federal Court. The guidance provides a very stringent view by the ATO on what may fall within the scope of section 100A. This may create significant risks with respect to trust distributions that will need to be managed very carefully.
