Unformatted text preview: was secured by a fixed deposit of \$1M earning tax-free interest of 4% p.a. There was no other security. In the year of assessment, F earned interest of \$40,000 from the deposit and paid interest of \$50,000 on the loan. The amount of interest expenses allowable for deduction will be reduced by \$40,000, being the tax-free interest earned. In other words, the allowable interest is \$10,000. Example 6 The \$1M loan in Example 5 was secured by a deposit of \$500,000 and some shares which were also worth \$500,000. The deposit generated tax-free interest of \$20,000. 11 The amount of interest expenses allowable for deduction will be reduced by the amount of tax-free interest (\$20,000) generated from the deposit. In other words, the allowable interest is \$30,000. Example 7 The \$1M loan in Example 5 was secured by a deposit of \$2M that generated tax-free interest of \$80,000. There was no other security. The amount of interest expenses allowable for deduction will be reduced by \$40,000, which is calculated as follows – \$1M (loan) \$2M (deposit) \$80,000 x = \$40,000 Example 8 The \$1M loan in Example 5 was secured by a deposit of \$1M (which generated tax-free deposit interest of \$40,000) and some shares valued at \$500,000. The amount of interest expenses allowable for deduction will be reduced by \$26,667, which is calculated as follows \$1M (deposit) \$1.5M (deposit + shares) \$40,000 x = \$26,667 The value of shares used as security may vary from time to time. For the purposes of this calculation, a reasonable basis of averaging, such as by reference to month end balances, will be accepted. Example 9 A deposit of \$2M (generating tax-free interest of \$80,000) was used to secure a loan of \$1M used for financing onshore business activities and another loan of \$1.5M used for financing offshore businesses. Interest incurred on the onshore business loan was \$50,000 and that on the offshore business loan was \$80,000. 12 In this example, the deposit was used to secure two loans. The amount of interest expenses allowable for deduction will be reduced by \$32,000, which is calculated as follows \$80,000 x Example 10 The two loans in Example 9 were secured by...
