SECTION 102-15 How to apply net capital losses
102-15(1) In working out if you have a *net capital gain, your *net capital losses are applied in the order in which you made them.
102-15(2) A *net capital loss can be applied only to the extent that it has not already been applied.
102-15(3) To the extent that a *net capital loss cannot be applied in an income year, it can be carried forward to a later income year.
You have capital gains for the income year of $1,000 and capital losses for the income year of $600. Your capital losses are subtracted from your capital gains to leave a balance of $400.
You have available net capital losses of $300 (for last year) and $200 (for the year before that).
The $400 is reduced to zero by applying the available net capital losses in the order in which you made them. This leaves $100 of the $300 to be carried forward and extinguishes the $200.
For applying a net capital loss for the 1997-98 income year or an earlier income year: see section
Income Tax (Transitional Provisions) Act 1997
