Calculate the total income from all sources. Write the total income at (a)
Is the amount at (a) greater than the maximum basic rate (MBR)?
If yes, write the MBR at (b)
If no, copy (a) to (b)
Multiply (b) by 14% and write the amount at (c)
Is the amount at (a) less than the MBR?
If yes, write $0 to (d)
If no, subtract the MBR from (a), and write the amount to (d)
Is the amount at (d) greater than the income free area (IFA)?
If yes, copy the IFA to (e)
If no, copy (d) to (e)
Multiply (e) by 55%
Is the amount at (d) less than the IFA?
If yes, write $0 to (g)
If no, subtract the IFA from (d), and write the amount to (g)
Multiply (g) by 27.5% and write the amount at (h)
Add up the amounts at (c), (f) and (h) to determine the formulated rate.
