This statement works out the tax liability (if any) taking account of amounts which reduce the tax liability.
The outcome is the net amount the company must pay or the ATO will refund.
The ATO and MYOB Tax use the information provided at certain labels of the Calculation statement to calculate the Commissioner's instalment rate and the Commissioner's instalment amount for taxpayers under the PAYG instalment system for the next income year (read: PAYG Instalment Income Worksheet (pgC) - Form C for MYOB's calculation methodology).
MYOB Tax pre-fills the labels in the Calculation Statement from information entered elsewhere in the return either at labels or in MYOB Tax worksheets. The worksheets and dialogs behind the labels indicate where an amount may be manually entered by the preparer. In the right-hand column, these labels are C Non-refundable, non-carry forward tax offsets, D Non-refundable carry forward tax offsets, and E Refundable tax offsets.
Label H Eligible credits, in the right-hand column, requires certain labels in the left-hand column to be completed so that the total (or the reduced total where required) can be integrated at the appropriate label.
Priority of use of tax offsets
The first category of tax offsets to be applied against gross tax is C Non-refundable non-carry forward tax offsets. As the name of this category suggests, if the offsets are greater than the gross tax, the excess offsets cannot be used and are lost.
Should tax still be payable after applying this category of offsets, at T2 Subtotal 1, the second category, D Non-refundable carry forward tax offsets, is applied against any remaining tax payable at label T2. Note that the early stage investor tax offset is applied after all other non-refundable carry forward offset but before the early stage venture capital limited partner tax offset.
Any excess of offsets in this category may be carried forward to the next year (subject to the tax offset carry forward rules in Division 65 of the ITAA 1997). If tax is still payable after application of the Non-refundable carry forward tax offsets, T3 Subtotal 2, the third category E Refundable tax offsets is applied against the tax remaining. Any excess of refundable tax offsets above the residual tax payable in T3 becomes part of the credits available to you and is shown at I Remainder of refundable tax offsets.
If tax is still payable at T4 Subtotal 3 after applying tax offsets from the above three categories,
F Franking deficits tax offsets are applied against this remaining tax to determine your tax payable amount.
Any excess of F over the residual tax payable at T4 may be carried forward to a later income year.
MYOB Tax transfers this amount from label T, Taxable income or loss. Where the amount at label T is a loss, a zero will be returned at this label. Income of $1 or more will be shown.
MYOB Tax calculates this amount in accordance with the Company type and any special income that is taxable at a higher or lower rate than the standard company tax rate of 30%.
From 1 July 2018 the rate of tax for small business entities tax is reduced to 27.5%. This is the amount of tax payable before the application of R&D recoupment tax. For the tax rates applying to companies select Maintenance > Tax Rates > Company.
Show at label M the extra tax required on your recoupment as calculated under Subdivision 355-G of the ITAA 1997.
Click label M to open the schedule BY, refer to Research and development tax incentive (BY).
If you have claimed the R&D tax incentive at item 21 and you have received or become entitled to receive a government recoupment (such as a government grant or reimbursement) that relates to expenditure that you have claimed a notional deduction for under the R&D tax incentive, the income tax you are liable to pay on the recoupment will be increased. This is referred to as a clawback adjustment. The amount to be shown at label M is 10% of both the following:
The R&D expenditure and decline in value for which you claimed a notional deduction in relation to the recoupment.
The expenditure and decline in value for which your affiliates and entities connected with you claimed a notional deduction in relation to the recoupment.
The clawback adjustment is capped so that the extra tax payable cannot exceed the amount of the grant you received.
For information about how this amount is calculated, refer to the fact sheet for clawback adjustment on the Research and development tax incentive home page.
MYOB Tax calculates the Gross Tax which is the sum of Tax on Taxable income at T1 plus R&D recoupment tax at label M. It is the amount of tax payable before the application of allowable offsets and credits.
Show at label C the total of actual tax offsets available - in dollars and cents - and not the amounts giving rise to those tax offsets.

Where there is an Excess franking credit, the excess is considered a deemed loss to be carried forward to a future year. When entered at item 8 label H, Tax will calculate the amount of the deemed loss and include it in the Prior Year loss worksheet (pyl) to be carried forward for use in a subsequent year.
This is the result of Gross tax less Non-refundable non-carry forward tax offsets and may not be negative. If the result is negative, a zero will be shown.

Due to the refundable tax offset rules in Division 67 of the ITAA 1997, the refundable R&D tax offset directly reduces tax payable by a company. This includes income taxes, GST, FBT and withholding taxes. Where the amount of the refundable R&D tax offset exceeds the amount of tax that the company would otherwise have had to pay, then the excess is refundable.
