Operative provisions

SECTION 115-215  Assessing presently entitled beneficiaries  

 View history reference

Purpose

115-215(1)  

The purpose of this section is to ensure that appropriate amounts of the trust estate ' s net income attributable to the trust estate ' s *capital gains are treated as a beneficiary ' s capital gains when assessing the beneficiary, so:


(a) the beneficiary can apply *capital losses against gains; and


(b) the beneficiary can apply the appropriate *discount percentage (if any) to gains.

115-215(2)  

(Repealed by No 62 of 2011)

Extra capital gains

115-215(3)  

 View history reference
If you are a beneficiary of the trust estate, for each *capital gain of the trust estate, Division 102 applies to you as if you had:


(a) if the capital gain was not reduced under either step 3 of the method statement in subsection 102-5(1) (discount capital gains) or Subdivision 152-C (small business 50% reduction) - a capital gain equal to the amount mentioned in subsection 115-225(1) ; and


(b) if the capital gain was reduced under either step 3 of the method statement or Subdivision 152-C but not both (even if it was further reduced by the other small business concessions) - a capital gain equal to twice the amount mentioned in subsection 115-225(1) ; and


(c) if the capital gain was reduced under both step 3 of the method statement and Subdivision 152-C (even if it was further reduced by the other small business concessions) - a capital gain equal to 4 times the amount mentioned in subsection 115-225(1) .

Note:

This subsection does not affect the amount (if any) included in your assessable income under Division 6 of Part III of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 because of the capital gain of the trust estate. However, Division 6E of that Part may have the effect of reducing the amount included in your assessable income under Division 6 of that Part by an amount related to the capital gain you have under this subsection.

115-215(4)  

For each *capital gain of yours mentioned in paragraph (3)(b) or (c):


(a) if the relevant trust gain was reduced under step 3 of the method statement in subsection 102-5(1) - Division 102 also applies to you as if your capital gain were a *discount capital gain, if you are the kind of entity that can have a discount capital gain; and


(b) if the relevant trust gain was reduced under Subdivision 152-C - the capital gain remaining after you apply step 3 of the method statement is reduced by 50%.

Note:

This ensures that your share of the trust estate ' s net capital gain is taxed as if it were a capital gain you made (assuming you made the same choices about cost bases including indexation as the trustee).

115-215(4A)  

 View history reference
To avoid doubt, subsection (3) treats you as having a *capital gain for the purposes of Division 102 , despite section 102-20 .

Section 118-20 does not reduce extra capital gains

115-215(5)  

To avoid doubt, section 118-20 does not reduce a *capital gain that subsection (3) treats you as having for the purpose of applying Division 102 .

115-215(6)  

(Repealed by No 62 of 2011)
