The amount included in your assessable income under subsection 45-5(2) or 45-10(2) is reduced if:

(b) the sum of the amounts (your proceeds ) referred to in paragraph 45-5(1)(e) or 45-10(1)(f) is more than the plant's * cost, or that part of it that is attributable to the interest you disposed of.

The amount included is reduced by the lesser of:

(b) the difference between your proceeds and the plant's cost, or that part of its cost that is attributable to the interest you disposed of.

However, the amount is not reduced under this section if:

(a) the * plant was a * pre-CGT asset at the time of the * balancing adjustment event; or

(b) a * capital gain or * capital loss from the plant or interest would be disregarded because of a provision listed in the table in this subsection if:
