Deduction of tax: interest in kind: certificate of tax deducted
Certificate of tax deducted
ITA07/S975 requires a person who deducts income tax from interest paid to provide the recipient, if they request it in writing, with a certificate showing the gross amount of the payment, the tax deducted and the actual amount paid.
For payments made on or after 17 July 2013 ITA07/S975A applies a similar rule in relation to:
- interest paid in kind (SAIM2600), or
- in the form of funding bonds (SAIM2210), where a person is required to retain bonds under ITA07/S939.
A person paying such interest must provide the recipient with a statement in writing, showing the amount of the interest paid in kind or as a funding bond, the amount of tax deducted (if any), the net amount paid, and the date of payment. Note that unlike the requirement in ITA07/S975, a certificate under ITA07/S975A is required whether or not the recipient requests it.
