CHAPTER 2 - LIABILITY RULES OF GENERAL APPLICATION  

PART 2-1 - ASSESSABLE INCOME  

Division 20 - Amounts included to reverse the effect of past deductions  

Subdivision 20-B - Disposal of a car for which lease payments have been deducted  

SECTION 20-100   What this Subdivision is about  


This Subdivision reverses the effect of deductions for lease payments for a car leased to you (or to your associate), but only if you make a profit by disposing of the car after acquiring it from the lessor. The smallest of these amounts is included in your assessable income:

  • · your profit on the disposal;
  • · the total deductible lease payments for the period of the lease;
  • · the total amounts you could have deducted for the car's decline in value if, instead of leasing it, you had owned it and used it solely for the purpose of producing assessable income.
