SECTION 250-260   Re-estimation if balancing adjustment on partial disposal  

Re-estimation if balancing adjustment on partial disposal

250-260(1)  
You also re-estimate a gain or loss from a *financial arrangement under subsection (2) if a balancing adjustment is made in relation to the financial arrangement under sections 250-265 to 250-275 because you transfer to another person:


(a) a proportionate share of all of your rights and/or obligations under a *financial arrangement; or


(b) a right or obligation that you have under a financial arrangement to a specifically identified *financial benefit; or


(c) a proportionate share of a right or obligation that you have under a financial arrangement to a specifically identified financial benefit.

You must re-estimate the gain or loss as soon as reasonably practicable after the transfer occurs.

Nature of re-estimation

250-260(2)  
Making a re-estimation in relation to a gain or loss under this subsection involves:


(a) a fresh determination of the amount of the gain or loss disregarding:


(i) *financial benefits; and

(ii) amounts of the gain or loss that have already been allocated to intervals ending before the re-estimation is made;
to the extent to which they are reasonably attributable to the proportionate share, or the right or obligation, referred to in paragraph (1)(b); and


(b) a reapplication of the accruals method to the redetermined gain or loss to make a fresh allocation of the part of that gain or loss that has not already been allocated to intervals ending before the re-estimation is made to intervals ending after the re-estimation is made. Basis for re-estimation

250-260(3)  
You make the fresh allocation of the gain or loss under subsection (2) by maintaining the rate of return being used and adjusting the amount to which you apply the rate of return to the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the maintained rate of return. The object to be achieved by the fresh allocation is allow you to bring the remainder of the redetermined gain or loss properly to account over the remainder of the period over which you spread the gain or loss.
