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.
Our experienced tax team can assist with:
- CGT planning
- Evaluating revenue or capital distinction for a gain or loss
- Assessing eligibility for potential CGT rollovers
- Determining potential access to CGT concessions or exemptions
- Calculating the CGT amount of a relevant transaction
- CGT in connection with deceased estates
- Tax audits and disputes, including liaison with tax authorities
