INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997
The termination value of a * depreciating asset is worked out as at the time when the * balancing adjustment event occurs. It is:
(a) if an item in the table in subsection (2) applies - the amount specified in that item; or
(b) otherwise - the amount you are taken to have received under section 40-305 for the asset.
Section 230-505 provides special rules for working out the amount of consideration for an asset if the asset is a Division 230 financial arrangement or a Division 230 financial arrangement is involved in that consideration.
If more than one item applies, use the value under the last applicable item.
