is the extent to which the creditable acquisition is for a * creditable purpose , expressed as a percentage of the total purpose of the acquisition.

full input tax credit
is what would have been the amount of the input tax credit for the acquisition if it had been made solely for a creditable purpose and you had provided, or had been liable to provide, all of the consideration for the acquisition.

However, if:


(a) an * annual apportionment election that you have made has effect at the end of the tax period to which the input tax credit is attributable; and
