(b) as a result of the CGT event, an entity *acquires the *CGT asset:

If:


(a) section 118-220 applies to you in relation to a *CGT event, but paragraph (1)(b) does not; or


(b) section 118-222 applies to you in relation to a CGT event;

the amount of the *capital gain or *capital loss that you would have made apart from this section from the CGT event is decreased by an amount that is reasonable.

118-225(3)  
In determining what is a reasonable decrease:


(a) if section 118-220 applies to you, but paragraph (1)(b) does not - treat yourself as being an individual who owned the *CGT asset as the trustee of the deceased ' s estate; and


(b) if section 118-222 applies to you - treat yourself as being an individual and treat the CGT asset or your *ownership interest in it as having *passed to you as a beneficiary in the deceased ' s estate; and

(ii) the extent that the dwelling was used for the *purpose of producing assessable income during the relevant period.

118-225(4)  
For the purposes of subparagraph (3)(c)(i), assume the *dwelling was not the deceased ' s main residence on each day the trust referred to in paragraph 118-220(b) was not a *special disability trust.

118-225(5)  


However, subsection (2) does not apply if, just before the deceased ' s death, the deceased was an *excluded foreign resident.
