    End of attention

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

    • if the asset is your main residence and you use it to produce income for the first time after 20 August 1996 (see chapter 6)
    • if you receive the asset 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)
    • under a demerger (see chapter 5), and
    • where you have been freed from paying a debt (see Debt forgiveness).
