SECTION 104-155   Receipt for event relating to a CGT asset: CGT event H2  

CGT event H2 happens if:

(b) the act, transaction or event does not result in an adjustment being made to the asset ' s *cost base or *reduced cost base.


You own land on which you intend to construct a manufacturing facility. A business promotion organisation pays you $50,000 as an inducement to start construction early.

No contractual rights or obligations are created by the arrangement.

The payment is made because of an event (the inducement to start construction early) in relation to your land.


This event does not apply if any other CGT event applies: see section 102-25 .

The time of the event is when the act, transaction or event occurs.


You make a capital gain if the *capital proceeds because of the *CGT event are more than the *incidental costs you incurred that relate to the event. You make a capital loss if those capital proceeds are less .

The costs can include giving property: see section 103-5 . However, they do not include an amount you have received as *recoupment of them and that is not included in your assessable income. Exceptions
