If:


(a) an *equity interest in the company changes at a particular time (the change time ) to a *debt interest in the company because of subsection 974-110(1) or (2) ; or


(b) an equity interest in the company changes to a debt interest in the company, with effect from a time (the change time ) that is the start of a particular income year, because of subsection 974-110(1A) ; or


(c) the following conditions are satisfied in relation to an interest in the company:


(i) subsection 974-75(6) does not apply to the interest in relation to a particular income year;

(ii) the interest is an equity interest in the company at the end of that income year;

(iii) subsection 974-75(6) applies to the interest from the time (the change time ) that is the start of the next income year;

there is, or is taken to have been, a debit to the *non-share capital account at the change time equal to:
 Credits in relation to the interest-Debits in relation to the interest 

where:

credits in relation to the interest is the sum of all the credits that have been made to the *non-share capital account in relation to the interest before the change time.

debits in relation to the interest is the sum of all the debits that have been made to the *non-share capital account in relation to the interest before the change time.

To avoid doubt, if:


(a) it appears that a debit to the company ' s *non-share capital account has arisen because an interest in the company appears to be, or have become, a *debt interest at a time in a particular income year; and


(b) because subsection 974-75(6) or 974-110(1A) is subsequently found not to apply in relation to the interest and that income year, the interest was not in fact, or did not in fact become, a debt interest at that time;

the debit referred to in paragraph (a) is taken never to have arisen.
