Westpac Capital Notes - amendment by Government of hybrid mismatch rules

Westpac notes that the Government amended the hybrid mismatch rules in September 2020.

Prior to this amendment, the hybrid mismatch rules had potential application to Westpac’s hybrid capital securities issued after 9 May 2017, which include Westpac Capital Notes 5, Westpac Capital Notes 6 and Westpac Capital Notes 7 (Relevant Westpac Capital Notes).

The relevant provision of the hybrid mismatch rules, being the so-called “anti-hybrid” provision in section 207-158 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth), can apply when a franked distribution gives rise to a foreign income tax deduction for the issuer of certain types of equity instruments.

However, following the recent legislative amendment to the anti-hybrid provision, it is now clear that this provision will not apply to deny franking credits or tax offsets to holders on their distributions on Relevant Westpac Capital Notes.

Holders of Relevant Westpac Capital Notes do not need to take any action at this time in respect of this recent amendment to the anti-hybrid provision.
