How to compute the tax payable?
1. For YA 2008 and YA 2009
See the following example:
Club DEF has chargeable income of $ 36,000 for the Year of Assessment (YA) 2009.
Tax payable by Club DEF for YA 2009 computed based on Part B rates is as follows:
|Tax payable on first $35,000
|Tax on balance 1,000 @ 40%
Effective rate of tax based on Part B rates (Y) $7,850/$36,000 = 21.8055%
Tax payable by Club DEF for YA 2009, if it were to be taxed as a company, is as follows:
|Normal chargeable income (before deducting exempt amount)
|Less exempt amount (Note 1)
|Normal chargeable income (after deducting exempt amount)
|Tax payable at 18%
Effective company tax rate (Z) $2,790/$36,000 = 7.7500%
Tax computation of Club DEF for YA 2009
Chargeable income $36,000 Tax on $36,000 at 7.7500% (Note 2) = $2,790.
Note 1 - computation of exempt income for normal chargeable income
|On the first $10,000, 75% of the income
|On the next $26,000, 50% of the income
|Total exempt amount
As the effective rate of tax for Club DEF based on the Part B rates (Y) exceeds the effective rate of tax if it were to be taxed as a company (Z), the rate of tax applicable on the income of Club DEF is limited to the effective rate of tax of 7.7500%. Therefore, the tax payable by Club DEF for the YA 2009 is limited to $2,790 ($36,000 x 7.7500%), which is essentially the same as if it were to be taxed as a company.
2. For YA 2010 onwards, the chargeable income of a body of persons will be taxed at the same tax rate structure as a company.
