Money Doesn’t Come Without Guidance ...
From July 1, 2014, the Australian Government had decided to create an Exploration Development Incentive (EDI) to support small and mid-sized companies undertaking greenfields mineral exploration. It acts as a mechanism for new investment, new exploration and new opportunities in the resources sector. The Australian resident investors of these companies will receive a tax incentive where the companies choose to give up a portion of their losses relating to their exploration expenditure in an income year.
The incentive applies from the 2014–15 financial year and EDI covered at an aggregate of $100 million for greenfields minerals use brought about over the following three-year time frame:
Individual Contribution in EDI
An individual may be allowed to a refundable tax offset equivalent to the sum of exploration credits. You will receive credit if you are an Australian resident for the entire financial year. You can guarantee your tax offset by completing item T9 of the individual income tax return for the 2015-2016 income tax, if you have gotten investigation credits directly or indirectly from your shareholdings in a greenfields minerals exploration.
You should be compelled to include the greater part of your tax offsets that you have got throughout the financial year including the expense balances for investigation credits and compose the aggregate sum at label P. If you want to claim for more than one sort of expense balance for your tax offset, then print M in the claim box. If you want to claim only a tax offset for exploration credits, print E in the claim box.
