SECTION 328-295   Value of trading stock on hand  

328-295(1)  


If you make a choice under section 328-285 for an income year, the *value of all your *trading stock on hand at the start of the income year is:


(a) the same amount as was taken into account under this Act at the end of the previous income year; or


(b) zero if no item of trading stock was taken into account under this Act at the end of the previous income year.

328-295(2)  


If you make a choice under section 328-285 for an income year, this Act applies to you as if the *value of all your *trading stock on hand at the end of the year were equal to the value of all your trading stock on hand at the start of the year.
Example:

Angela operates a riding school, and also sells riding gear. Her business is a small business entity for the 2008-09 income year and makes a choice under section 328-285 for that year.

At the start of the 2008-09 income year, the opening value of Angela's trading stock is $30,000. Using her reliable inventory system, she estimates the closing value to be $34,000.

The closing value for the 2008-09 income year, and the opening value for the 2009-10 income year, will be $30,000.
