Division 701 - Core rules  

Head company rules  

SECTION 701-10   Cost to head company of assets of joining entity  

701-10(1)  
This section has effect for the head company core purposes when the entity becomes a * subsidiary member of the group. Assets to which section applies

701-10(2)  


This section applies in relation to each asset that would be an asset of the entity at the time it becomes a * subsidiary member of the group, assuming that subsection 701-1(1) (the single entity rule) did not apply.
Note:

See subsection 705-35(3) for the treatment of a goodwill asset resulting from the head company's ownership and control of the joining entity.

Object

701-10(3)  
The object of this section (and Division 705 which relates to it) is to recognise the cost to the * head company of such assets as an amount reflecting the group's cost of acquiring the entity. Setting tax cost of assets

701-10(4)  
Each asset's * tax cost is set at the time the entity becomes a * subsidiary member of the group at the asset's * tax cost setting amount. Multiple setting of tax cost for same trading stock or registered emissions unit

701-10(5)  
However, if:


(a) the asset is * trading stock or a *registered emissions unit; and


(b) the asset's * tax cost is set by this section at more than one time (each of which is a setting time ) for the same income year;

then, except where subsection (6) applies, only the amount at which the tax cost is set at the last of the setting times is to be taken into account.

701-10(6)  


If:


(a) the * head company's * terminating value for the asset; or


(b) the * value of the asset at the start of the income year;

is required to be worked out for one or more occasions when an entity (whether or not the same entity) ceases to be a * subsidiary member of the group in the income year, then the amount at which the asset's * tax cost is set by this section at a particular setting time is only taken into account in working out the head company's terminating value for a particular occasion if:


(c) the setting time occurs before the occasion; and


(d) there is no intervening setting time or occasion.

701-10(7)  
(Repealed by No 99 of 2012)
