BHP Billiton Ltd v Commisioner of Taxation–“Sufficient Influence in Commercial Dealings”


On 11 March 2020, the High Court unanimously dismissed the taxpayer’s appeal from the Full Federal Court regarding attribution of income under Part X of the ITAA 1936.

Key to the decision was the High Court’s reasoning that each of BHP Billiton Ltd and BHP Billiton Plc exercised ‘sufficient influence’ over the other within the meaning of s 318(6) of the ITAA 1936.

An expert panel – including two counsel who appeared in the matter before the High Court - will discuss the decision and key implications for taxpayers.
