  • Applying capital losses



    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 small business 15-year exemption applies, you do not reduce the capital gain by any capital losses before you apply that concession.

    In all other cases, you apply the CGT discount and the small business concessions to the capital gain after the capital gain has been reduced by any current and prior year capital losses.

    If you have more than one capital gain, you can choose the order in which your capital gains are reduced by your capital losses.
