    Market value

    Many of the laws we administer require ascertainment of market value. Some common instances are:

    • for individuals – transfers of real estate or shares between related parties, such as husband and wife, or family members
    • for employees – non-cash benefit transactions, such as gifts, or other benefits, such as car parking
    • for small businesses – transfers of assets to related parties, passing the asset threshold tests for the small business capital gains tax concession
    • for property developers – the GST margin scheme
    • for businesses – consolidation events
    • for all taxpayers – many anti-avoidance provisions.
