Step 1

Calculate the amount worked out using the formula:


Portion of your CE × Days used × 0.04
365

where:

portion of your CE is the portion of *your construction expenditure that is attributable to the part of *your area that you used in the *4% manner.

days used is the number of days in the income year that:

  • (a) you owned or were the lessee of that part of *your area and used it in the *4% manner; or
  • (b) you were the holder of that part of *your area under a *quasi-ownership right over land granted by an *exempt Australian government agency or an *exempt foreign government agency, and used that part of your area in the 4% manner.

  • Step 2

    Reduce the Step 1 amount by the extent to which the part referred to in Step 1 was used only partly for the *purpose of producing assessable income.


    Step 3

    Calculate the amount worked out using the formula:


    Portion of your CE × Days used × 0.025
    365

    where:

    portion of your CE is the portion of *your construction expenditure that is attributable to the part of *your area that you did not use in the *4% manner but was used as described in Table 43-140 (Current year use).

    days used is the number of days in the income year that:

  • (a) you owned or were the lessee of that part of *your area and used it in that manner; or
  • (b) you were the holder of that part of *your area under a *quasi-ownership right over land granted by an *exempt Australian government agency or an *exempt foreign government agency, and used that part of your area in that manner.

  • Step 4

    Reduce the Step 3 amount by the extent to which the part referred to in Step 3:

  • (a) for a *hotel building or *apartment building - was used only partly for the *purpose of producing assessable income; or
  • (b) for any other capital works - was used only partly for the purpose of *producing assessable income or conducting *R&D activities.

  • Step 5

    Add the Step 2 and Step 4 amounts.


    Step 6

    The amount of your deduction is the lesser of your Step 5 amount or the *undeducted construction expenditure for *your area.
