COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA

This Legislative Instrument has been repealed by Legislative Instrument No. F2015L00798 registered on 11 June 2015.

Income Tax Assessment Act 1997

I, BRUCE WILLIAM QUIGLEY, Deputy Chief Tax Counsel - Indirect Taxes, delegate of the Commissioner of Taxation, make this Determination under subsection 40-100 (1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

1 Name of Determination

This Determination is the Income Tax (Effective Life of Depreciating Assets) Determination 2001.

2 Commencement

This Determination is taken to have commenced on 1 July 2001.

3 Effective life of depreciating assets

(1)
For subsection 40-100 (1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, the effective life of depreciating assets is specified in Tables A and B.
(2)
If the entity deducting an amount for a depreciating asset is using the asset in an industry specified in Table A, Tables A and B are to be used as follows:

(a)
if the asset corresponds exactly to a description in Table A for the industry in which the asset is used, its effective life is the life specified for that asset;
(b)
if the asset:

(i)
does not correspond exactly to a description in Table A for the industry in which the asset is used; but
(ii)
satisfies the general description of asset used in the functional process of that industry -
its effective life is the life specified in Table A for that class of asset;

(c)
if:

(i)
paragraphs (a) and (b) do not apply to the asset; and
(ii)
the asset corresponds to a description in Table B -
its effective life is the life specified with that description.

Note Table A is intended to describe assets:

·
that are peculiar to a particular industry; or
·
for which a particular effective life is appropriate because of the way in which a particular industry uses the asset.

The industry headings in Table A have, where possible, been drawn from the classification subject categories in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) Codes.

(3)
If:

(a)
the entity deducting an amount for a depreciating asset is not using the asset in an industry specified in Table A; and
(b)
the asset corresponds to a description in Table B -
the effective life of the asset is the life specified with that description.

Note If Tables A and B are not used, or cannot be used because:

·
the asset is not used in an industry specified in Table A; and
·
Table B has no description that corresponds to the asset -

the way to work out the effective life of the asset is explained in section 40-105 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
