• How do I view general interest charge (GIC) that I can claim or need to declare in my income tax return?

    Log into the homepage of the Business Portal and follow these steps:

    1. Choose Account details from the left navigation bar and the Account list screen will be displayed.
    2. Select the Integrated client account and the Itemised account – by ATO processed date screen will be displayed.
    3. Select the More display options button and the Options for showing account information screen will be displayed.
    4. Choose the financial year and the Tax type summary radio button in the By Income tax year box.
    5. Select the Show button and the Tax type summary – by income tax year screen will be displayed. The net deductible interest expense amount for the selected account and financial year will be displayed.

    This only shows the net deductible interest amount for the selected account. If you have more accounts, you will need to check these to obtain the total net deductible interest amount.

    This screen also shows the net assessable interest amount for the selected account. The total of these amounts should be shown as income in the relevant tax return.
