When the Commissioner makes an assessment:


(a) of the income tax that the *head company of a *consolidated group is liable to pay for a *consolidation transitional year for the head company; or


(b) that no income tax is payable by the head company for that year;

the head company is, in addition to any credit to which it is entitled under section 45-30 for that year, entitled to a credit in relation to instalments payable by an entity that is a *subsidiary member of the group at any time during that year.

45-865(2)  
The credit is equal to:


(a) the sum of so much of each instalment payable by the entity (even if it has not paid it) for an *instalment quarter of a *consolidation transitional year for the entity, or for that year, as is reasonably attributable to so much of that quarter or year:


(i) which is, or is included in, the consolidation transitional year for the *head company; and

(ii) during which the entity is a *subsidiary member of the group;
minus


(b) the sum of so much of each credit that the entity has claimed under section 45-215 or 45-420 for each instalment quarter covered by paragraph (a) as is reasonably attributable to:


(i) for a credit under section 45-215 - so much of the preceding instalment quarters of that consolidation transitional year for the entity which is covered by subparagraphs (a)(i) and (ii); or

(ii) for a credit under section 45-420 - so much of that instalment quarter and the preceding instalment quarters of that consolidation transitional year for the entity which is covered by subparagraphs (a)(i) and (ii).

45-865(3)  


To avoid doubt, if:


(a) during the *instalment quarter or the *consolidation transitional year mentioned in paragraph (2)(a), the entity is a *subsidiary member of:


(i) 2 or more *consolidated groups; or

(ii) one or more consolidated groups and one or more *MEC groups; and


(b) an amount is taken into account under that paragraph or paragraph (2)(b) in working out the credit to which the *head company of one of the groups is entitled under subsection (1);

that amount is not to be taken into account in working out the credit to which the head company of another of those groups is entitled under that subsection.

45-865(4)  


A reference in subsection (3) to subsection (1) or paragraph (2)(a) or (b) includes a reference to that provision in its extended operation in relation to a *MEC group under Subdivision 45-S .
