Income Tax Assessment Act 1997
This Division prevents losses of individuals from non-commercial business activities being offset against other assessable income in the year the loss is incurred. The loss is deferred.
It sets out an income requirement and a series of tests to determine whether a business activity is treated as being non-commercial.
The deferred losses may be offset in later years against profits from the activity. They may also be offset against other income if the income requirement and one of the other tests are satisfied, or if the Commissioner exercises a discretion.
