• Record keeping for rollover relief

    Attention

    End of attention

    If automatic rollover relief applies - see Rollover relief - the transferor must give the transferee a notice containing enough information for the transferee to work out how the UCA rules apply to the transferee's holding of the depreciating asset. Generally, this needs to be done within six months after the end of the transferee's income year in which the balancing adjustment event occurred. The transferee must keep a copy of the notice for five years after:

    • the asset is disposed of, or
    • the asset is lost or destroyed

    whichever happens earlier.

    If a transferor and transferee jointly choose rollover relief, the decision must be in writing and must contain enough information for the transferee to work out how the UCA rules apply to the transferee's holding of the depreciating asset. Generally, the choice needs to be made within six months after the end of the transferee's income year in which the balancing adjustment event occurred. The transferor must keep a copy of the agreement for five years after the balancing adjustment event occurred. The transferee must keep a copy for five years after the next balancing adjustment event that occurs for the asset.
