Superannuation interests

Last updated 3 March 2016

From 28 December 2002 CGT rollover may apply when a CGT asset of a small superannuation fund is transferred to another small superannuation fund on the breakdown of a legal (but not a de facto) marriage.

A small superannuation fund is one that is a complying fund and has fewer than five members.

The consequences of rollover are the same as for transfers between spouses.

Main residence

If the CGT asset transferred in a marriage breakdown rollover is your home, you may be entitled to an exemption from CGT for the period the home was your main residence. Special rules apply if the dwelling is transferred to you from a company or trust (see chapter 6 for more information).
