73EA(2) No balancing charges for transferor.
Section 73BF does not apply in respect of the disposal of the asset by the transferor.
73EA(3) Effect on transferee.
The transferee is entitled to a deduction under section 73BA worked out using the same effective life and method for working out decline in value as the transferor was using in respect of the asset under that section.
73EA(4) Additional consequences.
For the purposes of Division 45 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 :
(a) if the transferor, or a partnership of which the transferor was a member, leased the asset to another entity for most of the time when the transferor or partnership held the asset - the transferee is taken also to have done so; and
(b) if the transferor, or a partnership of which the transferor was a member, leased the asset to another entity - the transferee is taken also to have done so; and
(c) if the main business of the transferor, or a partnership of which the transferor was a member, was to lease assets of that kind - the main business of the transferee is taken also to have been to lease assets of that kind.
73EA(5) Subsequent applications of roll-over relief - relief available even if no deduction for subsequent transferor.
If, apart from this subsection, this section has applied to the disposal of the section 73BA depreciating asset to the transferee, then, in working out whether it applies to a subsequent disposal of the asset by:
(a) the transferee; or
(b) one or more subsequent successive transferees;
this section has effect as if paragraph (1)(c) (which deals with deductions) were ignored.
73EA(6) Notice to allow transferee to work out how this section applies.
The transferor must give the transferee a notice containing enough information about the transferor's holding of the asset for the transferee to work out how this section applies to the transferee's holding of it.
The transferor must give the notice within 6 months after the end of the transferee's year of income in which the disposal mentioned in subsection (1) occurred, or within a longer period allowed by the Commissioner.
The transferee must keep the notice until the end of 5 years after the earlier of these events:
(a) the transferee disposes of the asset;
(b) the asset is lost or destroyed.
Penalty: 30 penalty units.
The Criminal Code applies to the offence in subsection (8).
