Using the capital gain or loss worksheet


The Capital gain or capital loss worksheet (PDF, 77KB) calculates a capital gain or capital loss for each separate capital gains tax (CGT) event.

Remember that:

If you bought and sold an asset within 12 months, you must use the 'other' method to calculate your capital gain. If you owned the asset for 12 months or more, you may be able to use either the discount method or the indexation method, whichever gives you the better result.
