Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper makes technical changes to the Taxation (Annual Rates, Foreign Superannuation, and Remedial Matters) Bill. It also inserts clauses amending the Child Support Amendment Act 2013 and Child Support Act 1991 so as to delay some changes made by the Child Support Amendment Act 2013 to the Child Support Act 1991.

Amendments to clause 25 extend the application of proposed section CZ 21B to include withdrawals from foreign superannuation funds for which a person applies before 1 April 2014, in addition to withdrawals that are derived before that date.

New clause 29B repeals section DG 3(4)(c), which contains an exclusion from the rules on expenditure relating to certain assets. The provision is repealed because it excludes a wider range of property than was intended.

Amendments to clauses 35, 80, 88(1), and 116B correct cross-references.

Amendments to clauses 52B and 52C clarify rules relating to depreciable property damaged by Christchurch earthquakes to allow for items of replacement property acquired at the same time.

Amendments to clause 58 and new clauses 59BA, 59BAB, and 102B to 102D make changes recommended by the Rewrite Advisory Panel to correct unintended legislative changes made in the drafting of the Income Tax Act 2007.

Amendments to clause 110 and 111 provide for the application periods of Orders in Council prescribing requirements for the preparation of financial statements.

New clauses 119 to 137 are inserted. The provisions change the time at which provisions in the Child Support Amendment Act 2013 come into force. They also make consequential amendments to that Act and to the Child Support Act 1991, in particular by changing references to dates. Some provisions originally intended to come into force on 1 April 2014 are to come into force on 1 April 2015 and some changes originally intended to come into force on 1 April 2015 are to come into force on 1 April 2016. The consequential amendments to the Child Support Act 1991 are to provisions that were amended by the Child Support Amendment Act 2013 with effect from 17 April 2013.
