S.455 tax on loans to parent company?

Never heard about this until today

Didn't find your answer?

Just reading the legislation on s.455 tax and it is worded in a way that includes a loan from a subsidiary to parent company in a close company group.

Am I understanding that correctly? So if a sub has no reserves and lends money to a parent, this will trigger s.455 tax?

How are you interpreting S455 that way?

I suspect misinterpreting S455(4) and (5)

There is confusion on circular loans, so that S455 is not avoided by passing loans around in a company group or associated company where borrower is not a shareholder of eventual lender, but was from company that started the circle
