    you receive a 50% franked dividend of $500. corporate tax rate is 30%.

    what is your assessable income in relation to this?

    from my understanding.

    it would be 500/.85 or something like that.

    u pretend u receive an unfranked dividend and just go off ur personal tax rate.

    for those of us who are not Aussies!

    Call the "original amount" X. If the corporate tax rate is 30$, the corporation has already paid 0.3X leaving X- 0.3X= 0.7X to give to you: 0.7X= 500 so X= 500/.7= $714.28. Would be the "unfranked" amount. Unfortunately, I am still not clear on what the "50%" in a "50% franked dividend of $500" means.
