We discuss the calculation of charged Higgs boson production in association with a top quark in the MC@NLO framework for combining NLO matrix elements with a parton shower. The process is defined in a model-independent manner for wide applicability, and can be used if the charged Higgs boson mass is either greater or less than the mass of the top quark. For the latter mass region, care is needed in defining the charged Higgs production mode due to interference with top pair production. We give a suitable definition applicable in an NLO (plus parton shower) context, and we present example results for the LHC.
