Step 2 Gross up any discounted capital gain you have received

Last updated 5 October 2009

If the fund has applied the CGT discount to your distribution, this is known as a discounted capital gain.

You need to gross up any discounted capital gain distributed to you by multiplying the gain by two. This grossed-up amount is your capital gain from the fund. If the managed fund has shown the grossed-up amount of the discounted capital gain on your distribution statement, you can use that amount.

Example 21: Grossing up a capital gain

Tim received a distribution from a fund that included a discounted capital gain of $400. Tim's statement shows that the fund had used the discount method to calculate the gain.

Tim grosses up the capital gain to $800 (that is, $400 × 2).
