    Example

    Steven received a dividend statement from Teleco Ltd. His statement showed a franked amount of $42.00 and a franking credit of $18.00.

    Note: This is just one example of a statement. There are many different formats.


    Teleco Ltd Steven McKay 2 Cable Circle Telegraph Point NSW 2441 Security holder reference number 018 012 111  Date paid 30 October 2005 Fully franked final dividend for hte period ended 30 June 2005. Franked at a 30% tax rate. Classd escription: ordinary shares Dividend rate per ordinary share: 7 cents Number of ordinary shares: 600 Franking credit: $18 Unfranked amount: nil Franked amount: $42 TFN quoted Dividend paid: $42

    Steven also received three other statements:

    • JT Corporate Unit Trust - his dividend statement showed $120.23 unfranked amount.
    • Koles Bier Pty Ltd - he did not give the company his TFN so his entitlement of $180 unfranked amount had $87.30 tax withheld (therefore he actually received $92.70).
    • SDW Managed Investment Fund - his distribution statement shows a franked dividend amount of $131 and a franking credit of $56.14.

    Steven would complete the worksheet like this:

    Column 1: Company or fund

    Column 3: Franked amount

    Column 4: Franking credit

    Transfer the totals for S, T and U to the application. Do not show any cents.

    Transfer the total for V to your application. Show cents

    Note: This amount includes both the amount received by Steven and the TFN amount withheld ($92.70 + $87.30).

    Steven completes the dividend details at item 11 on the application like this:

      11 Dividends Did you receive any dividend distributions from a managed fund or Australian franking credits from a New Zealand company? Yes Label S Unfranked amount: $300 Label T Franked amount: $173 Label U Franking credit: $74 Label V Tax file number amounts withheld from dividends: $87.30

     

    Steven will receive a refund of $161.30 if he has no outstanding tax debts. This is made up of the amount withheld because he didn't provide his TFN ($87.30) plus his franking credit ($74).
