Treasury has released exposure draft Taxation Administration (Private Ancillary Fund) Guidelines 2019 (2019 Guidelines), in anticipation of the sunsetting of Private Ancillary Fund Guidelines 2009, which is scheduled to occur on 1 October 2019.
The draft 2019 Guidelines will ensure that eligible funds are able to obtain or maintain their deductible gift recipient status and does not alter the substantive meaning or operation of the existing guidelines. Transitional provisions have been included in the draft 2019 Guidelines to ensure continuity between the sunsetting of the old guidelines and introduction of the new guidelines.
