Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 8 September 2003, replace the Income Tax (Withholding Payments) Amendment Regulations 2003, which were made recently.

These regulations provide a new class of withholding payments for contractors in the television, video, or film industries. The rate of tax deduction is 20 cents per $1.

The new class does not apply to resident entertainers in the class in clause 4(a) of Part B, non-resident entertainers in the class in clause 4(b) of Part B, or non-resident contractors in the class in Part E.

The replaced regulations would unintentionally have applied the new class to those groups.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 4 September 2003.
