Working out the company's net capital gain and net capital loss

SECTION 165-111   165-111   How to work out the company ' s net capital gain  
The company ' s net capital gain for the income year is worked out in this way: Working out the company ' s net capital gain

Step 1.

Add up the *notional net capital gains (if any) worked out under section 165-108 .


A notional net capital loss for a period is not taken into account, but counts towards the company ' s net capital loss for the income year.

Step 2.

Add to the Step 1 amount so much of each amount included in the company ' s assessable income for the income year under:

  • (a) section 97 (Beneficiary of a trust estate who is not under a legal disability) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 ; or
  • (b) section 98A (Non-resident beneficiaries assessable in respect of certain income) of that Act;
  • as is attributable to a *capital gain that the trust made outside the income year.


    This is relevant only if the trust has an income year that starts and ends at a different time from when the company ' s income year starts and ends.

    Step 3.

    If the Step 2 amount is more than zero, reduce it by applying any unapplied *net capital losses from previous income years. (If this reduces it to zero, the company has no net capital gain for the income year.)


    To apply net capital losses: see section 102-15 .

    Step 4.

    If the Step 3 amount is more than zero, it is the company ' s net capital gain .


    For exceptions and modifications to these rules: see section 102-30 .
