Q: Are there any changes to section 10(1)(o)(ii) for the 2016 year of assessment?

A: There were no announcements in the budget review 2015 regarding the foreign employment income exemption. However this exemption as well as the foreign pension exemption in section 10(1)(gC) ITA has been raised by Treasury as being counter to the principle of worldwide basis of taxation and they are relooking this from a policy perspective. It is however unclear whether it is matter of immediate importance to them and more clarity will be had when the 2015 Draft Bills are released by Jun/July this year.
