SECTION 124-785   What is the roll-over?  

124-785(1)  
A *capital gain you make from your original interest is disregarded.

124-785(2)  
You work out the first element of the *cost base of each *CGT asset you received as a result of the exchange by reasonably attributing to it the cost base (or the part of it) of your original interest for which it was exchanged and for which you obtained the roll-over.

124-785(3)  
In applying subsection (2), you reduce the *cost base of your original interest (just before you stop owning it) by so much of that cost base as is attributable to an ineligible part (see section 124-790 ).

124-785(4)  
The first element of the *reduced cost base is worked out similarly. EXAMPLES

Example 1:

Lyn exchanges 1 share with a cost base of $10 for another share. The cost base of the new share is $10.

Example 2:

Glenn exchanges 2 shares with cost bases of $10 and $11 respectively for one new share. The cost base of the new share is $21.

Example 3:

Wayne exchanges 1 share with a cost base of $9 for share A with a market value of $5 and share B with a market value of $10. The cost base of share A is $3 and the cost base of share B is $6.
