We provide easy-to-use online tools to take some of the complexity out of CGT.

The Capital gains tax checklist gives you an easy way to determine possible CGT consequences now and in the future.

Use the checklist's question-and-answer format to determine:

  • whether you are likely to have a capital gain or capital loss in the current income year
  • whether you are likely to have a CGT event in the future, and
  • what sort of records you need to keep.

Capital gains tax updates, available through the above link, give you information on the latest CGT developments including:

  • changes and proposed changes to the law
  • new Tax Office rulings and determinations
  • new ATO interpretative decisions (ATO IDs)
  • new online CGT resources.

The guide Basic capital gains tax issues for legal professionals provides detailed information on the CGT consequences of some common legal transactions. Topics covered include conveyancing, wills and the administration of deceased estates, family law, litigation and compensation issues and record keeping.
