You will not be able to work out your foreign tax credit if you have shown exempt foreign employment income at N item 19 on your tax return.
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) will work it out for you.
If this is the case, print Schedule of additional information-Question 19 on the top of a separate piece of paper and explain your situation. Include your name, address, tax file number, each type and amount of foreign income received and any foreign tax paid. Print X in the Yes box at Taxpayer's declaration question 2a on page 8 of your tax return. Sign and attach your schedule to page 3 of your tax return. If you have no capital gain or no exempt foreign employment income, work through the following steps to find out your foreign tax credit. A practical example follows step 8.
