Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Determination TD 93/43 is withdrawn with effect from today.

1. Taxation Determination TD 93/43 stated that the consideration in respect of the disposal of such an asset is the market value of the shares on the date of disposal of the asset.

2. Subsection 116-20(1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 deals with the general rules about capital proceeds. It clearly states that the market value of any property other than shares received, or entitled to be received, is worked out as at the time of the event. As the law is expressed clearly, it is considered that no further explanation is needed.

3. Accordingly, TD 93/43 is withdrawn.
