- Appeals update: The High Court has refused the Commissioner’s application for special leave to appeal against the decision of the Full Federal Court in Commissioner of Taxation v Macquarie Bank Limited which held that the general anti-avoidance provisions did not apply to a member of a consolidated group in respect of a capital gain made on the sale of shares.
