The amount of the *franking debit arising because of a determination by the Commissioner under paragraph 204-30(3)(a) must not exceed:

(b) if the specified distribution, although *frankable, has not been franked - an amount worked out by multiplying the amount of the distribution by the highest franking percentage at which a distribution to a favoured member is franked; or


(c) if the specified distribution is *unfrankable - an amount worked out by multiplying the amount of the distribution by the highest franking percentage at which a distribution to a favoured member is franked; or


(d) if the specified benefit is the issue of bonus shares from a share premium account - an amount worked out by multiplying the amount debited to the share premium account in respect of the bonus shares by the highest franking percentage at which a distribution to a favoured member is franked; or


(e) if some other benefit is specified - an amount worked out by multiplying the value of the benefit by the highest franking percentage at which a distribution to a favoured member is franked.

204-40(2)  
In specifying the *franking debit, the Commissioner must have regard to:


(a) any *franking debit already arising in the *franking account of the entity under paragraph 203-50(1)(b) because the entity franked the specified *distribution in breach of the *benchmark rule; and


(b) any franking debit already arising in the franking account of the entity, because of the specified distribution or benefit, under section 204-15 (about linked distributions) or section 204-25 (about substituting *tax-exempt bonus shares for *franked distributions).
