    End of attention

    The completion of the CGT labels on your entity’s 2021 tax return involves:

    • a three-step process (for entities with capital gains or capital losses under the $10,000 threshold)
    • a four-step process (for entities with capital gains or capital losses over the $10,000 threshold), or
    • a four-step process if you are a superannuation fund (or pooled superannuation trust) recognising a capital gain in 2020-21 that was deferred in 2016–17 under the transitional CGT relief.

    Step 1

    Calculate the capital gain or capital loss for each CGT event that happens during 2020–21 using the Capital gain or capital loss worksheet.

    Step 2

    Calculate the net capital gain for 2020–21 or net capital losses carried forward to later income years using the CGT summary worksheet.

    Step 3

    Complete the capital gains item on your entity’s tax return.

    Step 4

    If required, complete a CGT schedule. If you have chosen to apply transitional CGT relief in 2016–17 and a realisation event occurred in 2020–21, you must complete a CGT schedule.
