(i) there is an attribution surplus for the disposal entity in relation to the eligible taxpayer;

(ii) there is an attribution surplus for one or more other attribution account entities in relation to the eligible taxpayer, where each such entity is one in which the eligible taxpayer has an indirect attribution account interest held through the disposal entity;

(d) for the purposes of this Act, attribution debits and credits arise in accordance with subsection (5).
