Tax summary report | Praemium Help Centre Australia

Tax summary report

The Tax summary report available from Report Builder is designed to assist you complete an Australian tax return.

The report contains four sections:

  • Assessable income: includes amounts that the ATO requires to be reported under income. Amounts in this section may be reconciled back to the Income report.
  • Deductions: includes amounts that might be deducted as expenses. Amounts in this section may be reconciled back to the Expenses report.
  • Tax offsets and credits: includes amounts subject to capital gains tax, or capital losses that may be carried forward to future financial years. Amounts in this section may be reconciled back to the Realised CGT report.
  • Additional information: includes information intended to provide supporting calculations and amounts.

The section's from date defaults to the start of the Australian financial year, relative to the report’s Period ending date. It includes:

  • Income with a tax date >= this date
  • Disposals with a sale date >= this date
  • Losses carried forward from <= this date.
  • Expenses with a tax date >= this date.

The sections to date is the portfolio's current as at date. You need to recalculate the portfolio to report for a different Australian financial year. It includes:

  • Income with a tax date <= this date
  • Disposals with a sale date <= this date
  • Losses carried forward from <= this date
  • Expenses with a tax date >= this date.


This table contains the options that you can change when generating this report.

Additional information
Select whether or not to show this section in the report.
Price; Qty; Amount
Gives you the ability to select:
  • Default rounding: in which these values are presented in the report in the same format as the report’s source data, or
  • Price 0.00; Quantity 0; Amount 0: in which prices are rounded to two decimal places, but Quantity and Amount values are presented in whole numbers only.
Portfolios (if applicable)

Allows you to select how you’d like to generate each report if your selected portfolio is a consolidated portfolio.
For each report that you have selected, if you choose:
  • Selected portfolio only, then the report will be generated for only the portfolio(s) that you have selected. This is the default option, and is the same as you currently experience when using Report Builder.
  • Sub-portfolios only, the report will be generated for the sub-portfolios (i.e. child portfolios) if your selected portfolio is a consolidated portfolio. This option will not generate a report for the parent portfolio.
  • Consolidated and sub-portfolios, the report will be generated for the parent consolidated portfolio and all its sub-portfolios.
If you choose either of the last two options and your selected portfolio is not a consolidated portfolio, don’t worry, the report will still generate for the selected portfolio.
In this short video we select a consolidated portfolio and generate the three different report options.
There are also options you can configure when you are generating your reports that allows you to choose how to collate your consolidated portfolios.

The options available for each section are configured by your System Administrator using the Report Settings screen.
