    End of attention

    Capital gains are defined (except for the purposes of regulation 152D) of the Income Tax Regulations 1936 as gains or profits of a capital nature that arise from the sale or disposal of all or part of a capital gains tax (CGT) asset, other than gains or profits that would not be capital gains but for a provision of Australian tax law.

    Regulation 152D provides that a capital gain (defined as gains or profits or other amounts of a capital nature) will be taken to be subject to tax in a listed country where the gain would have been subject to tax except for the operation of a rollover relief provision of a kind specified in the Income Tax Regulations 1936 contained in the tax law of that country. Broadly, the types of rollover relief relate to the types of rollover relief provisions available for capital gains tax purposes under Australian tax law.
