(c) the new asset had not been your active asset at all times when the original asset was not your active asset.

Note 1:

Subdivision 124-B allows you to choose a roll-over if your CGT asset is compulsorily acquired, lost or destroyed.

Marriage or relationship breakdowns

152-45(2)  
If you were the transferee of a *CGT asset for which there has been a roll-over under Subdivision 126-A , then you may choose that the active asset test in section 152-35 applies as if:


(a) you had acquired the asset when the transferor acquired the asset; and


(b) the asset had been an *active asset of yours at all times when the asset was an active asset of the transferor; and


(c) the asset had not been an active asset of yours at all times when the asset was not an active asset of the transferor.

Note 1:

Section 103-25 tells you when the choice must be made.

Note 2:

There is a roll-over under Subdivision 126-A if CGT assets are transferred because of a marriage or relationship breakdown.

Note 3:

If you don ' t make the choice, the time of acquisition is simply the time of the transfer.

Note 4:

Making the choice here has certain consequences for the 15-year exemption: see section 152-115 .
