SECTION 385-95   Basic principles for elections under this Subdivision  

385-95(1)  
You can elect:

  • · to spread the profit on the disposal or death over the income year of the disposal or death and the next 4 income years ( election to spread ); or
  • · to defer including the profit in your assessable income, if you will use the proceeds of the disposal or death mainly to replace the live stock ( election to defer ).
  • 385-95(2)  


    If you make an election to defer, the profit is ``used'' over the next 5 income years:
  • · by reducing the amount for which you are taken to have bought replacement stock (as a result, your tax profit on the disposal of the replacement stock is increased); and
  • · by including in your assessable income amounts for replacement stock that you breed.
  • Any unused part of the profit is included in your assessable income for the fifth income year.
