  • Step 5-Did you make a capital loss?



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

    End of attention

    If the capital proceeds are less than your reduced cost base, the difference is your capital loss.


    Assume, for a moment, that Fred had sold his shares for $4000 instead of $6000. Fred would then have had a capital loss of $1075 (that is, his reduced cost base of $5075 less his capital proceeds of $4000).
