Division 109 - Acquisition of CGT assets  

SECTION 109-1   What this Division is about  


This Division sets out the ways in which you can acquire a CGT asset and the time of acquisition.

The time of acquisition is important for indexation, and for the exemption of assets acquired before 20 September 1985.

Generally, you acquire a CGT asset when you become its owner. You can also acquire a CGT asset:

  • · as a result of a CGT event happening: see section 109-5 ; or
  • · in other circumstances: see section 109-10 .
  • This Division also directs you to special acquisition rules in other Divisions.
