Subsection (3) applies in relation to an amount if:


(a) at a time, you:

(ii) start to construct an asset; or

(iii) start to hold an asset in some other way; and


(b) at a later time, you engage in conduct that results in you:


(i) entering into a contract under which you hold the asset mentioned in paragraph (a) (or an identical or substantially similar asset) at that later time, or will hold that asset (or an identical or substantially similar asset) at an even later time; or

(ii) starting to construct an asset that is identical or substantially similar to the asset mentioned in paragraph (a); or

(iii) starting to hold the asset mentioned in paragraph (a) (or an identical or substantially similar asset) in some other way; and

Despite paragraph (1)(a), the investment commitment time for an amount to which that paragraph would otherwise apply is the time mentioned in paragraph (2)(a).

41-25(3A)  

For the purposes of paragraph (1)(a) and subsection (2), treat yourself as having started to construct an asset at a time if you first incur expenditure in respect of the construction of the asset at that time.

For the purposes of paragraph (1)(b), treat yourself as having started construction for an economic benefit at a time if you first incur expenditure in respect of the construction for the benefit at that time.

Options

41-25(4)  

To avoid doubt, for the purposes of this section, you do not enter into a contract under which you *hold an asset merely because you acquire an option to enter into such a contract.
