(c) you hold the unit until a later time (the taxable status commencement time ), where the following conditions are satisfied:


(i) assuming that you had sold the unit to someone else immediately before the taxable status commencement time, the proceeds of the sale would not have been included in your assessable income under section 420-25 ;

you are treated as if:
