SECTION 820-220   820-220   Amount of debt deduction disallowed  

The amount of *debt deduction disallowed under subsection 820-185(1) is worked out using the following formula:

Average debt


average debt
means the sum of:

(a) the average value, for the income year, of the entity ' s *debt capital that is covered by step 1 of the method statement in subsection 820-185(3) ; and

(b) the average value, for that year, of the entity ' s *cost-free debt capital that is covered by step 4 of that method statement.

debt deduction
means each *debt deduction of the entity for that year.

excess debt

The disallowed amount also does not form part of the cost base of a CGT asset. See section 110-54 .
