How Sharesight helps you handle Australian AMIT tax componentsContent also available for tax entities or on our global site.
Record the Attribution Managed Investment Trust, (AMIT) cost base increase and decrease components for a AMIT holding distribution. Sharesight will correctly adjust the cost base and takes this into account when running the Capital Gains Tax Report and Taxable Income Reports.
IMPORTANT: Please ensure that the values that are entered or are generated by Sharesight match your end of year statement from your provider
If you have confirmed dividend payments throughout the year, you will need to reset these before entering or having Sharesight update the end of financial year components

|Foreign income tax offset
|AMIT Excess amount
|AMIT Shortfall amount
|This amount is non-assessable and is used to adjust your cost base for CGT purposes. For AMIT’s this value should be left blank.
|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.
|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.
Sharesight will then calculate and pro rate the AMIT component across the distributions received throughout the year or period the trust was held.
When using the pro rata form, it is recommended to add all components. If only the AMIT adjustments are entered, the cash position and other tax components will most likely be incorrect.
