Modification rule for capital gains



This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

End of attention

Profits or gains of a capital nature are determined on the basis of the period that would have been used under Part XI of that Act instead of applying the special rules in Part X of the ITAA 1936. [subsection 559A(5)]

This rule ensures that any choice in relation to a FIF will not:

  • refresh the cost base of assets that are held by the FIF;
  • change the time of acquisition of an asset held by a FIF; or
  • impact on the events that result in a capital gain being ignored.
