Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Hi pls assist me on the below if possible.

 

A company receives a franked dividend distribution and the franking credit is recorded in the franking account (CR ).

 

These franking credits eventually result in a excess frnaking credits and the excess is converted to a tax loss and c/f.

 

Are any adjustments required to the amount of franking credits already recorded in the franking account ? 

 

Many thanks.

Credit to franking account when dividend received  -  loss treatment does not change that.
