(ii) the R&D partnership could have deducted, for an income year, an amount as described in subparagraph (i) if it had used the asset; and
(b) one or more partners of the R&D partnership are entitled under section 355-100 to *tax offsets for one or more income years for deductions (the R&D deductions ) under section 355-520 for the asset.

In applying section 40-290 (including references in that section to the reduction of deductions under section 40-25) in relation to the asset, assume that using the asset for a *taxable purpose includes using it for the purpose of conducting the *R&D activities to which the R&D deductions relate.

(b) that is included in the R&D partnership's assessable income for the asset under section 40-285 (after applying subsection (2) of this section) for the event year;
is increased by 1/3 of the following amount:
|Sum of all R&D deductions||×||Adjusted section 40-285 amount|
|Total decline in value|
(a) if the section 40-285 amount is a deduction - the amount of the deduction; or
(b) if the section 40-285 amount is an amount included in the *R&D partnership's assessable income - so much of the section 40-285 amount as does not exceed the total decline in value.
