This matter involves an application by a taxpayer to fund an appeal lodged by the Commissioner of Taxation from a decision of the AAT in favour of the taxpayer.

If the taxpayer is successful, the taxpayer and other entities related to the taxpayer will also be entitled to claim the refundable tax offset.

Current Stage of Case

3 July 2015, the Federal Court allowed the appeal against the judgment in favour of the plaintiff.
