INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997
You must elect to value each item of *trading stock on hand at the end of an income year at:
(a) its *cost; or
(b) its market selling value; or
(c) its replacement value.
An item's market selling value at a particular time may not be the same as its market value.
In working out the *cost, market selling value or replacement value of an item of *trading stock (other than an item the *supply of which cannot be a *taxable supply) at the end of an income year, disregard an amount equal to the amount of the *input tax credit (if any) to which you would be entitled if:
(a) you had *acquired the item at that time; and
(b) the acquisition had been solely for a *creditable purpose; and
Some assets, such as shares, cannot be the subject of a taxable supply.
The rest of this Subdivision deals with cases where the normal operation of this section is modified, or where a different valuation method may or must be used. The table sets out other cases where that happens because of provisions outside this Subdivision.
