A *capital gain or *capital loss is disregarded if you make it from a *CGT event happening in relation to any of the following:

(b) a right to an asset of such a fund;

(b) an entity receives a payment or property where:


(i) the entity was not a member of the fund; and

(ii) the entity *acquired the right to the payment or property for consideration.

118-305(3)  


Subsection (2) does not apply if:
