82AHA(5)   [Where taxpayer became partner after 26 February 1992]  

Where:


(a) the individual interest of a taxpayer in the net income of a partnership has been or is to be included in the assessable income of the taxpayer of a year of income (in this subsection referred to as the relevant year of income ), or the individual interest of a taxpayer in a partnership loss has been allowed or is allowable as a deduction from the assessable income of the taxpayer of a year of income (in this subsection also referred to as the relevant year of income );


(b) a deduction (in this subsection referred to as the relevant deduction ) under this Subdivision in respect of a unit of eligible property was taken into account in calculating that net income or partnership loss;


(c) the relevant deduction would not have been taken into account for the purpose of that calculation if this section applied in relation to the property;


(d) this section does not apply in relation to the property by reason only that the property was acquired by the partnership under a contract entered into on or before 26 February 1992 or was constructed by the partnership, construction having commenced on or before that date; and


(e) the taxpayer became a partner in the partnership under a contract entered into by the taxpayer after that date;

there shall be included in the assessable income of the taxpayer of the relevant year of income an amount that bears to the amount of the relevant deduction the same proportion as the individual interest of the taxpayer in that net income bears to that net income or, as the case requires, as the individual interest of the taxpayer in that partnership loss bears to that partnership loss.

82AHA(6)   [Where taxpayer became partner before 26 February 1992]  

Where:


(a) the individual interest of a taxpayer in the net income of a partnership has been or is to be included in the assessable income of the taxpayer of a year of income (in this subsection referred to as the relevant year of income ), or the individual interest of a taxpayer in a partnership loss has been allowed or is allowable as a deduction from the assessable income of the taxpayer of a year of income (in this subsection also referred to as the relevant year of income );


(b) a deduction (in this subsection referred to as the relevant deduction ) under this Subdivision in respect of a unit of eligible property was taken into account in calculating that net income or partnership loss;


(c) the relevant deduction would not have been taken into account for the purpose of that calculation if this section applied in relation to the property;


(d) this section does not apply in relation to the property by reason only that the property was acquired by the partnership under a contract entered into on or before 26 February 1992 or was constructed by the partnership, construction having commenced on or before that date;


(e) the taxpayer became a partner in the partnership under a contract entered into by the taxpayer before that date;


(f) after that date, the taxpayer made or agreed to make a contribution or contributions (which contribution is or contributions are in this subsection referred to as the additional contribution ) to the capital of the partnership in addition to any contribution or contributions to the capital of the partnership that, under a contract or contracts entered into on or before that date, he had made or agreed to make; and


(g) by reason of making or agreeing to make the additional contribution, the individual interest of the taxpayer in that net income or partnership loss, being that individual interest expressed as a fraction of the aggregate of the individual interests of the partners in that net income or partnership loss, is greater than it would otherwise have been;

there shall be included in the assessable income of the taxpayer of the relevant year of income an amount ascertained in accordance with the formula


A (B   -   C),

where -

A is the amount of the relevant deduction;

B is the individual interest of the taxpayer in that net income or partnership loss being that individual interest expressed as a fraction of the aggregate of the individual interests of the partners in that net income or partnership loss; and

C is the fraction that would be B if another partner, and not the taxpayer, had made or agreed to make the additional contribution.
