It is crucial for business owners and investors to consider the implications of Capital Gains Tax (CGT) when undertaking a transaction that involves a capital asset.
Clarity in CGT

When you sell a capital asset, such as shares or real estate, you must consider the tax implications of making a capital gain or a capital loss in the transaction.

The Capital Gains Tax (CGT) regime has been part of the Australian taxation system since 1985, but it remains a regime that has been grafted onto a system which taxes income. As such, for business owners and investors alike, CGT raises a host of important tax issues, ranging from the threshold issue of whether an event is of a capital nature, rather than revenue, through to consideration of the various concessions or exemptions that may apply.
