Why rollover your capital gain?

If you satisfy the conditions for a capital gains tax (CGT) rollover you may be eligible to roll over all or part of your capital gain.

Generally, the rollover has three consequences:

  • we disregard any capital gain that arises from ending your original licence
  • the new licence is treated as though you acquired it on the date that you acquired your original licence
  • the cost base of your original licence (or licences) will be allocated to your new licence (or licences).
