    The following figures are taken from 'STEP 3: Separate the apportionable items' in Case study 2 in Mutuality and taxable income.

    a Total non-deductible expenses less total non-deductible decline in value (depreciating assets)

    = $1,638,278 – ($9,781 + $87,430 + $188,881)
    = $1,352,186

    b Total deductible decline in value (depreciating assets)

    = $3,811 + $34,068 + $73,600
    = $111,479

    c Total non-assessable revenue = $1,780,616

    Item 15 Licensed clubs only

    Example using ‘Item 15 Licensed clubs only’ label

    Example

    As the Celadon Club is a licensed club, it calculates the percentage of its non-member income as follows:

    =

    total non-member income

    x 100

     

    total income

     

     

     

     

    =

    $847,684

    x 100

     

    $2,680,100

     

     

     

     

    =

    31.6288%

     

    Note: Total non-member income = Assessable income from 'STEP 4: Calculate the taxable income' in Case study 2 in Mutuality and taxable income.

    The club rounds the percentage to whole figures and writes 32% at A.

    The percentage of non-member income entered at this item differs from the club's non-member percentages calculated in Case study 2 of Mutuality and taxable income. This is because:

    • the club used more than one method of apportionment – that is, a simple method and the Waratahs formula
    • the club's total income includes non-member income such as bank interest.
