Assessable income derived from interest or capital gains will be liable to tax according to the provisions of the laws of the Commonwealth and the Australian States.
Coupon Interest Payments on Exchange-traded Australian Government Bonds (eAGBs) are exempt from non-resident interest withholding tax.
If an investor does not provide details of their Tax File Number (TFN) or Australian Business Number (ABN) to the Registry, tax may be deducted from Coupon Interest Payments. You will have an opportunity to provide your TFN or ABN when you invest in eAGBs.
If you are already an eAGB holder and wish to update your tax details, please contact Computershare Investor Services Pty Limited.
For more information on tax considerations, please contact the Australian Taxation Office or a tax adviser.
