Amount of the decline in value

40-160(3)  
The decline in value for the current year is:

(a)  if the asset ' s start time occurs in the current year - the asset ' s cost as at the end of the current year, disregarding any amount included in the asset ' s cost after 30 June 2022; or

(b)  if the asset ' s start time occurred in an earlier year - the sum of its opening adjustable value for the current year and any amount included in the second element of its cost for the current year, disregarding any amount included in the asset ' s cost after 30 June 2022.

Note 1:

The asset ' s start time is when you first use it, or have it installed ready for use, for any purpose (including a non-taxable purpose): see subsection 40-60(2) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 .

Note 2:

A case covered by paragraph (b) is where you start to hold the asset in the period 6 October 2020 to 30 June 2021 and use it for only non-taxable purposes in that period, then first use it for a taxable purpose in the period 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022.
