    End of attention

    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 the 2015–16 income year, the NRAS certificate must relate to the NRAS year 1 May 2015 to 30 April 2016.
