(b) you start to have the financial arrangement in that income year or a later income year; and


(c) the financial arrangement is part of a portfolio of similar financial arrangements; and


(d) a gain or loss to which subsection 230-130(3) applies arises in part from a premium or discount in starting to have the portfolio; and


(e) the gain or loss is not expected to be significant relative to the amount of the gain or loss on the portfolio.

230-165(2)  
For the purposes of this Division, split the gain or loss mentioned in paragraph (1)(d) as follows:

(b) to the extent that it does not arise from the premium or discount, treat it as a separate gain or loss from the financial arrangement to which subsection 230-130(3) applies.

Determination of period for premium/discount gain or loss

230-165(3)  
The period over which the premium/discount gain or loss is to be spread is the period that you determine to be the expected life of the portfolio, if:

(b) the basis on which you determine the period is set and recorded before you start to have the *financial arrangement; and


(c) the period can be justified objectively; and


(d) the period is reasonable in the circumstances. Spreading the premium/discount gain or loss

(b) the method is determined before you start to have the *financial arrangement; and


(c) the method can be justified objectively; and
