(i) the fair value method provided for in Subdivision 230-C ; or

(ii) the foreign exchange retranslation method provided for in Subdivision 230-D ; or

(iii) the method of relying on your financial reports provided for in Subdivision 230-F ; and

(c) that change applies to a particular income year and later years; and
