Alteration time before commencement time to be disregarded

An alteration time does not include a time before the commencement time.

Commencement time

The commencement time for a company is:

(a) if the company was in existence at 1 pm (by legal time in the Australian Capital Territory) on 11 November 1999 - that time; or

(b) if the company came into existence after that time - the time when it came into existence.

Certain alteration times to be disregarded


(a) a time (the test time ) would, apart from this subsection, be an alteration time in relation to a company; and

(b) the company does not have any losses of the kinds referred to in paragraphs 165-115R(3)(a) , (b), (c) and (d) and 165-115S(3)(a) and (b); and

(c) the test time is not a changeover time in relation to the company under Subdivision 165-CC ; and

(d) if the test time were such a changeover time, it would be reasonable for the company to conclude that it would not have an unrealised net loss at that time under section 165-115E ;

the test time is taken not to be an alteration time in relation to the company.

Application to CGT events other than disposals

This Subdivision applies to a *CGT event (other than a *disposal) happening in relation to a CGT asset (for example, an interest in a company that is constituted by an equity or debt):

(a) in the same way as it applies to a disposal of a CGT asset; and

(b) as if the asset had been disposed of at the time when the CGT event happens.
