Trust pro rata distributions components form

The tax components on a trust distribution are typically estimated at the time of payment and not finalised until after the end of the tax year. In this case the finalised components are provided in an annual taxation statement. As the annual taxation statement only provides the annual totals, it is necessary to allocate these amounts across each transaction in Sharesight (typically distributions are made on a quarterly or monthly basis).

This form enables you to enter the amounts from the annual taxation statement.

Trust pro rata distributions components form is available for trust income when the date range is selected for a financial year and ‘Show holding totals’ is selected in the ‘advanced options’.

Click on the ‘Enter Annual Tax Statement Components’ button beneath the trust distribution totals.

Sharesight will then calculate and pro rate the components across the distributions received throughout the year or period the trust was held.

6 -3 - Taxable Income Report

Note: Sharesight receives finalised distribution components for ETFs that are processed via Computershare, so in most cases you will find that your Computershare distributions are already correct.

Note: Trust distributions are taxable based on the year in which they are earned by the trust. For some funds the ex date for the final distribution is set to the first business day in the new year. In this case Sharesight will correctly allocate the payment to the correct income year and as such it may appear to be future dated with respect to the report end date.

Form distribution taxable components:

Franked Amount - This value is net of the tax paid/franking credits. For attribution managed investment trusts (AMIT) this number is the total attributable franked amount minus the tax paid/franking credits and may not be displayed on the annual statement.

Unfranked Amount - Often referred to on annual statements as the Non primary production income. For AMITs you need to record the total attributable amount. Interest components can be included here for tax purposes.

Interest - It is not necessary to separate out interest from the total unfranked value for tax purposes. If you decide to do so, make sure to reduce the unfranked amount by the interest portion.

Tax Deferred - This amount is non-assessable and is used to adjust your cost base for CGT purposes. For AMITs this value should be left blank.

AMIT Decrease - Relevant for AMITs when the taxable income attributed to you is less than the cash distribution you received. This amount is non-assessable and is used to decrease your cost base for CGT purposes. This value is added to your gross amount as it represents cash received that was not attributed to you for tax purposes.

AMIT Increase - Relevant for AMITs when the taxable income attributed to you is more than the cash distribution you received. This amount is non-assessable and is used to increase your cost base for CGT purposes. This value is deducted from your gross amount as it reduces from your attributed income to the net cash amount you actually received.

Note: For AMITs that balance quarterly, you may see both AMIT Decrease and AMIT Increase components within a tax year. The difference between the two should match the AMIT value displayed on your statement.

Foreign Source Income - The gross amount of non Australian assessable income (before deduction of any tax paid/credits).

Discounted CGT - This is grossed up and included with your capital gains on the CGT report. You will often see two types of discounted gains on your statement. You need to enter the total of the two.

Capital Gains - Non discounted capital gains. This is included with your capital gains on the CGT report. You will often see two types of capital gains on your statement. You need to enter the total of the two.

CGT Concession - The amount of any CGT discount included on the statement. For AMITs this is referred to as the AMIT CGT gross up amount.

Non assessable - The amount of non assessable income. This is used to reduce your reduced cost base. It does not affect your cost base. For AMIT’s this value should be left blank.

TFN Withholding Tax - The Amount of any Australian tax that has been deducted. This typically only occurs when your Tax File Number (TFN) has not been provided.

Foreign Tax - The amount of foreign tax paid/offset.

Franking Credits - The amount of franking credits attached to the distribution. This value will usually be found under the Tax Paid/Offsets column of the annual statement.

Other Net FSI - The amount of non Australian assessable income (before deduction of any tax credit) after offsetting any allowable expenses or losses relating to foreign source income. This value does not affect the gross amount.

Note: The ‘Net Amount’ and the ‘Recalculated Net Amount’ must be the same for the form to be correctly filled in.
