  • Rights and options to acquire shares or units

    A company or trust you own shares or units in may issue you rights or options to acquire additional shares or units at a specified price.

    While the issue or exercise of rights or options doesn't generally give rise to a capital gain, you make a capital gain or loss when a CGT event happens to the rights or options (other than as a result of exercising them) or the shares or units acquired as a result of exercising the rights or options.
