Example:    Amanda’s Graphics is a small business entity for the 2014‑15 income year and chooses to use this Subdivision for that year. The business has an opening pool balance of $8,500 for its general small business pool for that year.

                   During that year, Amanda acquired a new computer for $2,000. The taxable purpose proportion of its adjustable value is:

                   $2,000 x 80% business use estimate = $1,600

                   Amanda also sold her business car for $9,600 during that year. The car was used 100% in the business.

                   To work out whether she can deduct an amount under this section, Amanda uses this calculation:

                   $8,500 + $1,600 ‑ $9,600 = $500

                   Because the result is less than $1,000, Amanda can deduct the $500 for the income year. The pool’s closing balance for the year is zero.
