    Attention

    End of attention

    Generally, average taxable professional income (ATPI) in an income year is one-quarter of the sum of the TPIs for the preceding 4 years. Special rules apply for working out the ATPI where your income averaging year 1 was less than 4 years ago. So, in the first 4 years, ATPI is worked out as follows:

    • year 1 nil
    • year 2 one-third of TPl in year 1
    • year 3 one-quarter of TPI in years 1 and 2
    • year 4 one-quarter of TPl in years 1, 2 and 3

    If you were not a resident at any time during the year immediately before your year 1, ring the ATO.
