The superannuation co-contributions worksheet is made up of a series of worksheets that feed into a summary worksheet. It is the summary worksheet that integrates calculated values to the labels F, G and H at A3.
These amounts when added to income earned from Salary or wages and sole trader income are used by the ATO in deciding your eligibility for the Government super contribution.
The overarching worksheet comprises several sub-worksheets that feed into the WorksheetE—The Summary. It is from the Summary that amounts and code for label F are passed.
The sub-worksheets are:
Worksheet A: Solely earned investment and business income and deductions
Worksheet B: Jointly earned investment and business income and deductions:
Section 1–Jointly earned investment income and deductions
Section 2–Jointly earned business income and deductions from employment
Worksheet C: Partnership distributions
Worksheet D: Adjustments:
Section A–Additional eligible and ineligible income
Section B–Other Adjustments
Click label F to open the worksheet. The worksheet opens at the Summary worksheet E.
All totals are collected in the Summary worksheet and from the here to the labels in the income tax return.
Dissecting the income and deductions
Clicking label A will open the following worksheet to which balances from items entered in the tax return have been defaulted in the first column.
As shown in the screenshot, you dissect the amount in the Amount at return label column into the other columns as appropriate. The example shows that there is both solely earned investment and jointly owned investment income.
Income at the top and expenses underneath. When you close the Worksheet A, we'll work out which amounts go at which of the A3 labels F, G and H.
Where there is no field in a column for certain items, it is because that income or expense type is not relevant to the income or expense type.
Complete Worksheets B, C and D as required. We've only completed Worksheet A as an example.
When you close the worksheet, the cursor moves to the Worksheet E - Summary.
This process is the same for worksheets B, C and D.
