Draft Taxation Determinations (DTDs) present the preliminary, though considered, views of the Australian Taxation Office. DTDs should not be relied on; only final Taxation Determinations represent authoritative statements by the Australian Taxation Office.

General CGT discount in Division 115

1. Yes, if you are an individual, complying superannuation entity or trust and you satisfy the requirements of Division 115. Subsection 115-25(2), Item 2, makes it clear that the general CGT discount can apply to a CGT event K6 situation. The general CGT discount is not available, however, to a company.

Small business relief in Division 152

2. Yes, if your pre-CGT shares are active assets within the meaning of section 152-40 and you satisfy the other requirements of Division 152.

3. The small business relief in Division 152 does not apply to property of the company or to property of any interposed company or trust.
