Amalgamation of title

Last updated 3 March 2016

The amalgamation of the titles to various blocks of land that you own does not result in a CGT event happening.

Land you acquire before 20 September 1985 that is amalgamated with land acquired on or after that date retains its pre-CGT status.

Start of example

Example – Amalgamation of title

On 1 April 1984, Robert bought a block of land. On 1 June 1999, he bought another block adjacent to the first one. Robert amalgamated the titles to the two blocks into one title.

Robert is taken to have two separate assets. The first block continues to be treated as a pre-CGT asset.
