(a) a reference to a debt is a reference to a debt in a liquidated sum (whether or not due or due and payable);
(b) a dividend deemed to be derived from Malaysia by virtue of section 14 shall be treated as paid on the day on which cash or its equivalent (whether in the form of a voucher, cheque or otherwise) in respect of the dividend is posted or delivered by or on behalf of the payer, and as distributed in specie on the day on which it is posted or delivered by or on behalf of the distributor;
(c) where any tax or foreign tax has been deducted in paying, crediting or distributing any gross income, then, with respect to that gross income, any reference in those sections to gross income paid, credited or received shall be taken to mean the amount of that gross income before the deduction;
