Abstract

PAFs are trusts to which taxpayers can make tax deductible donations.1 The term private ancillary fund is defined in the taxation legislation and has some similarities with the US private family foundation. This new arrangement allows families, businesses and individuals to create a tax effective closely held charitable trust which was not possible prior to the initiative. The sole purpose of a PAF must be to provide money, property or benefits to funds, authorities or institutions, which are deductible gift recipients (DGRs).

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
