Operative provisions

SECTION 40-292   Adjustments - assets used for both general tax purposes and R&D activities  

40-292(1)  
This section applies if:


(a) a *balancing adjustment event happens in an income year (the event year ) for an asset you *held and for which:


(i) you can deduct, for an income year, an amount under section 40-25, as that section applies apart from Division 355 and former section 73BC of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936; or

(ii) you could have deducted, for an income year, an amount as described in subparagraph (i) if you had used the asset; and


(b) you are entitled under section 355-100 to *tax offsets for one or more income years for deductions (the R&D deductions ) under section 355-305 for the asset.

Section 40-290 to be applied as if use for conducting R&D activities were use for a taxable purpose

40-292(2)  
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. Increase in amounts deductible under section 40-285

40-292(3)  
If you are entitled under section 355-100 to a *tax offset for the event year in respect of deductions under Division 355 totalling at least $20,000, any amount (the section 40-285 amount ) you can deduct for the asset under section 40-285 (after applying subsection (2) of this section) for the event year is increased by:


(a) if your *aggregated turnover for the event year is less than $20 million - ½ of the amount worked out under subsection (5) of this section; and


(b) otherwise - 1/3 of the amount worked out under subsection (5) of this section.

Increase in amounts assessable under section 40-285

40-292(4)  
Any amount (the section 40-285 amount ) that is included in your 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 amount worked out under subsection (5) of this section. Component of any increase in amounts deductible or assessable

40-292(5)  
The amount is worked out as follows:


Sum of your R&D deductions × Adjusted section 40-285 amount
Total decline in value

where:

adjusted section 40-285 amount
means:


(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 your assessable income - so much of the section 40-285 amount as does not exceed the total decline in value.

total decline in value
means the *cost of the asset less its *adjustable value.
