11.3.4 Year End Processing: Calculate Tax – Section C: Deductions

When you move to the Deductions page, Mclowd displays a worksheet listing tax deductible amounts.

Section C: Tax Deductions

Review all the figures presented on the deductions page, comparing with your records to verify that figures match the expected values at all relevant labels.


NOTE:
If any part of the populated value in L1: Oher Amounts is a non-deductible expense, you may need to transfer that amount, or the non-deductible portion of that amount, to L2 (on the right). The figure entered in L2 will be deducted from L1. Refer below.


Click the SAVE DEDUCTIONS button.

Mclowd confirms that the Deductions were saved and offers options to EXPORT TO EXCEL, PRINT or DOWNLOAD AS PDF.
