Tools for Franking Calculations
What are Franking Credits?
Franking Credits (sometimes called Imputation Credits) were created to stop what was essentially double taxaction of shareholders. So a company would pay tax on it's profits then distribute that profit to the shareholders and they, the shareholders, would have to pay tax on that dividend. Franking Credits ensure that tax is only paid once. Of course a company can pay from funds that have not been taxed - so that would be an unfranked dividend. Dividends can be fully or partially franked or unfranked. We have some tools to help with those pesky calculations.
Obviously if you have any questions or confusion you should consult a taxation professional.
