Income Tax Assessment Act 1997



Division 230 - Taxation of financial arrangements  

Subdivision 230-H - Exceptions  

SECTION 230-470   230-470   Forgiveness of commercial debts  

If a gain that you make from a *financial arrangement arises from the *forgiveness of a debt to which Subdivisions 245-C to 245-G apply, the gain is reduced by:

(a) if section 245-90 (about agreements to forgo capital losses or deductions) applies - the debt's provisional net forgiven amount mentioned in that section; or

(b) if that section does not apply - the debt's *net forgiven amount.


Section 51AAA (about a net capital gains limit) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 also has the effect of preventing you from deducting losses.
