    End of attention

    There are other rules that may affect the cost base or reduced cost base of an asset. For example, they are calculated differently:

    • when you first use your main residence to produce income (see chapter 6)
    • for an asset that you receive as a beneficiary or as the legal personal representative of a deceased estate (see chapter 9)
    • for bonus shares or units, rights and options and convertible notes (see chapter 5).
