    Complete the relevant parts of the worksheet for those interests you held in the FIF on the last day of the notional accounting period (see chapter 2). Interests in the FIF that you disposed of before the end of the notional accounting period are not taxed under the FIF measures.

    ___________

    Take B away from A.

    C

    ___________

    If the amount at C is negative, the FIF has a calculated loss. This loss is allowed as a notional deduction for the same FIF in future years.

    If the amount at C is positive, the FIF has a calculated profit. Go to part 2.

       

    Part 2

    ___________

    If Yes, insert the amount, if any, of the distributions that are of the type to which subsection 530(1) of the ITAA 1936 applies. Include any reduction of FIF income resulting from employee share schemes. [section 530A] See chapter 6 for more information.
