Step 1 Work out the capital gain you have received from the managed fund

Last updated 5 October 2009

You need to know whether you have received any capital gain in your distribution - to find out, check the statement from your managed fund.

This statement should also show which method the fund has used to calculate the gain - the indexation, discount or 'other' method. You must use the same method(s) as the fund to calculate your capital gain. (These methods are explained in part A and part B, and in Definitions.)

Fund managers may use different terms to describe the calculation methods and other terms used in this guide. For example, they may refer to capital gains calculated using the indexation method and 'other' method as non-discount gains.
