## Calculate the tax, Taxation

Assignment Help:

Sue, Scarlett and Sally are in a partnership together providing accounting services.  The partnership uses the cash basis to account for income tax.  Under the partnership agreement, Scarlett is to get a partner's salary of \$60,000, and the balance of the net income is to be equally shared between all three partners.  Any franking credits are to be shared according to the partners' relative share of net income.

During the 2009/10 income year, the partnership had invoiced clients \$645,000 (incl GST) for services rendered.  However, the partnership had only received \$561,000 (incl GST) in cash as at 30 June 2010.  In addition, the three partners had also disposed of a block of land that they had acquired on 12 October 2004 - the sale of the land gave rise to a capital gain of \$75,000.  The three partners were going to build office premises, but the location was found to be unsuitable.

Other receipts and expenditure items of the partnership were as follows:
