    J – National rental affordability scheme tax offset entitlement

    Write at J the company’s entitlement to a tax offset under the National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS). Show cents.

    The NRAS is designed to encourage large-scale investment in affordable housing. The NRAS offers incentives to providers of new dwellings on the condition that they are rented to low and moderate income households at 20% below market rates.

    The refundable tax offset is only available when the secretary of the Department of Social Services has issued a certificate under the NRAS. In order to claim the tax offset in 2020–21, the NRAS certificate must relate to the NRAS year 1 May 2020 to 30 April 2021.

    For more information, see National Rental Affordability Scheme – refundable tax offset and other taxation issues.

    The NRAS tax offset is intended to be subject to the refundable tax offset rules and can be claimed at E Refundable tax offsets in the Calculation statement.
