Taxing charities : reform without reason?
The proposal to tax the unrelated business income of charitable organisations was announced in the 2011 budget, but the course of events has overtaken the stated policy rationale. We identify and discuss the policy for the imposition of the new tax and demonstrate that the measure is unnecessary given a recent judgement by the High Court, establishment of a new charity regulator and a better understanding of the applicable tax theory.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
