Income Tax Assessment Act 1997
This section applies if a company becomes a *PDF during an income year and is still a PDF at the end of it. 195-35(2)
Divide the income year into periods according to subsection 195-15(2) (about working out the company's tax loss for the income year). 195-35(3)
For each period, work out whether the company has a *net capital gain or a *net capital loss (or both), treating each period as if it were an income year. 195-35(4)
If the company has:
(a) a *net capital gain for the non-PDF period; and
(b) a *net capital loss for the PDF period;
that loss is a net capital loss of the company for the income year.
The company can only apply the loss while it is a PDF: see section 195-25 .195-35(5)
If the company has a *net capital loss for the non-PDF period:
(a) section 195-25 does not prevent the company from applying its *net capital loss for the income year in working out its *net capital gain for a later income year; and
(b) section 195-30 does not prevent the company from transferring an amount of its net capital loss for the income year under Subdivision 170-B (which is about the transfer of net capital losses within certain wholly-owned groups of companies);
to the extent that its net capital loss for the income year does not exceed its net capital loss for the non-PDF period.
These rules apply in addition to the other rules about how *net capital losses are applied or transferred.
The other rules start in Division 102 (about net capital gains and losses).
