    Complying superannuation funds, complying ADFs and PSTs are entitled to claim a refund of excess franking credits in respect of dividends received (including non-share dividends and assessable dividends from a New Zealand franking company).

    If you are one of these superannuation entities, show at F4 the amount of franking credits that relate to dividends received including non-share dividends and assessable dividends from a New Zealand franking company. Make sure you have included the amount of franking credits in the assessable income you wrote at:

    • I Gross distributions from partnerships item 10
    • L Dividend franking credit item 10
    • P Trust distributions franking credit item 10, or
    • E Australian franking credits from a New Zealand company item 10.

    If the fund is a non-complying superannuation fund or a non-complying ADF, the fund is entitled to a tax offset of franking credits that relates to dividends received (including non-share dividends and assessable dividends from a New Zealand franking company) against the income tax liability of the fund. Show the amount of franking credits at C2 Credit: rebates and tax offsets. Make sure you have included the amount of franking credits in the assessable income you wrote at L Dividend franking credit and E Australian franking credits from a New Zealand company.

    Do not show at F4 credits that you have included at C1 Credit: foreign income tax offsets or payments for the fund's 2008-09 tax liability. Show any amounts already paid for the fund's 2008-09 tax liability at G PAYG instalments raised.

    Attention

    A dividend from a New Zealand franking company may also carry New Zealand imputation credits. An Australian resident cannot claim New Zealand imputation credits.
