25-95(1)  

You can deduct a * work in progress amount that you pay for the income year in which you pay it to the extent that, as at the end of that income year:


(a) a recoverable debt has arisen in respect of the completion or partial completion of the work to which the amount related; or

You can deduct the remainder (if any) of the * work in progress amount for the following income year.

25-95(3)  

An amount is a work in progress amount to the extent that:


(a) an entity agrees to pay the amount to another entity (the recipient ); and


(b) the amount can be identified as being in respect of work (but not goods) that has been partially performed by the recipient for a third entity but not yet completed to the stage where a recoverable debt has arisen in respect of the completion or partial completion of the work.

25-95(4)  

An amount does not stop being a work in progress amount merely because it is paid after a recoverable debt has arisen in respect of the completion or partial completion of the work to which the amount related.
