(c) in the case of a reimbursement - the amount of the reimbursement is not included in the taxpayer's assessable income under section 15-70 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 ;

the amount of the deduction that, but for this section, has been allowed or would be allowable in respect of the loss or outgoing shall be:


(d) if it would be concluded that the amount of the payment or reimbursement would have been the same even if the loss or outgoing were not incurred in producing assessable income of the taxpayer - calculated as if the loss or outgoing were reduced by the amount of the payment or reimbursement; or


(e) in any other case - reduced by the amount of the payment or reimbursement.
