# A, T1, J and B Calculation of gross tax

Last updated 29 March 2021

## A Taxable income

You wrote the SMSF's taxable income, or its loss, at O Taxable income or loss in Section C.

### Is the amount at O Taxable income or loss a loss?

 No Transfer the amount from O Taxable income or loss in Section C. Yes Write 0 at A. Go to T1.

A is mandatory. If you leave A blank, you will have specified a zero amount.

## T1 Tax on taxable income

### Is the amount at A zero?

 Yes Write 0 at T1. Go to J. No Read on.

### Is the SMSF a complying SMSF for the income year?

 No All assessable income for a non-complying SMSF is taxed at 45%, whether arm's length income, non-arm's-length income or arising from a change in the SMSF's tax status. Multiply A by 45%. Write the answer at T1. Yes Different tax rates apply to arm's length and non-arm's-length income. Add: 45% of U Net non-arm's-length income (in Section B) and 15% of (A in Section D less U Net non-arm's-length income in Section B). The result is the tax on the SMSF's taxable income before applying rebates, tax offsets, and credits. Write the result at T1, then go to J.

T1 is mandatory. If you leave T1 blank, you will have specified a zero amount.

## J Tax on no-TFN-quoted contributions

If the SMSF received no-TFN-quoted contributions (recorded at R3 No-TFN-quoted contributions in Section B), it pays extra tax on those contributions.

### Did the SMSF receive contributions from a member who has not provided their TFN?

 No Write 0 at J. Go to B. Yes Read on.

Extra tax applies to no-TFN-quoted contributions. To work out the extra tax, multiply the no-TFN-quoted contributions by:

• 32% if the SMSF is a complying SMSF
• 2% if the SMSF is a non-complying SMSF.

Write the result at J.

All SMSFs, complying and non-complying, have an overall tax rate of 47% on no-TFN-quoted contributions:

• complying SMSFs pay 15% (at T1) and 32% (at J), a total of 47%
• non-complying SMSFs pay 45% (at T1) and 2% (at J), a total of 47%.

## You must complete J. If you leave J blank, you specify a zero amount.B Gross tax

Write at B the total of T1 and J. If the sum is zero, write 0 at B.

Example: Calculating B Gross tax (without non-arm's-length income)

SMSF B is a complying SMSF. It does not have any non-arm's-length income or no-TFN-quoted contributions.

SMSF B calculated its taxable income as \$14,500 which it wrote in at O Taxable income or loss in Section C and also at A Taxable income in Section D.

SMSF B calculates its tax on taxable income at T1 to be \$2,175 as follows:

• Rate: 15%
• Income: \$14,500
• Tax: \$2,175

SMSF B does not have any no-TFN-quoted contributions so it writes \$0 at J Tax on no-TFN-quoted contributions.

B Gross tax is the sum of T1 and J (\$2,175 + \$0).

In the SMSF annual return, SMSF B writes:
