Tax-exempted amounts do not affect your cost base and reduced cost base.
However, if your statement shows any tax-deferred or tax-free amounts, you adjust the cost base and reduced cost base as follows:
Before 1 July 2001, a payment of an amount associated with building allowances was treated as a tax-free amount. Payments on or after that date are treated as tax-deferred amounts.
A CGT-concession amount received before 1 July 2001 was treated in the same way as a tax-deferred amount. However, from this date, CGT-concession amounts no longer require a cost base or reduced cost base adjustment.
