  • Chapter 4-Trust distributions



    This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

    End of attention

    Distributions from trusts (including managed funds) can include two types of amounts that affect your capital gains tax obligation:

    • capital gains, and
    • non-assessable payments.

    This chapter shows how to record a capital gain distributed from a trust, including non-assessable payments. These payments mostly affect the cost base of units in a unit trust (including managed funds) but can create a capital gain. Non-assessable payments do not affect beneficiaries of a discretionary trust.

    Managed funds include property trusts, share trusts, equity trusts, growth trusts, imputation trusts, and balanced trusts.
