Computation tab

This tab displays a Capital Gains computation based on the disposals entered for the year. If you have not entered any disposals for the year then the computation will show only a zero gain. See disposals tab

Downloading the computation

You can download a PDF copy of the computation by clicking Download PDF. You can also download a copy from the Review & File tab for the Tax Return after you have prepared the Tax Return for e-filing.

Including the computation with the Tax Return

For years on or after 2016

There are three options available for computations:

  • NO – Not required’ No computation is being attached
  • YES – Auto-attach this computation’ Taxfiler will automatically attach its own computation to the tax return
  • YES – I have attached my own’ Use this option if you are attaching your own computation. You will need to attach the computation manually from the Data Input screen.

For years prior to 2016

If you set the option “Attach computation to return when e-filing?” to “Yes”, Taxfiler will automatically attach the Capital Gains computation to the Tax Return when preparing the Tax Return for e-filing. This is easier than downloading the computation PDF file and manually attaching it to the Tax Return.
