SECTION 40-35  Jointly held depreciating assets  

 View history reference [No equivalent]

40-35(1)  

 View history reference
This Division and Divisions 41, 328 and 775 apply to a *depreciating asset (the underlying asset) that you *hold, and that is also held by one or more other entities, as if your interest in the underlying asset were itself the underlying asset.

Note:

Partners do not hold partnership assets: see section 40-40.

40-35(2)  

As a result, the decline in value of the underlying asset is not itself taken into account.

Example:

Buford Corp owns an office block that it leases to 2 companies, Smokey Pty Ltd and Bandit Pty Ltd. Smokey and Bandit decide to install a fountain in front of the building.

They discuss it with Buford who agrees to pay half the cost (because the fountain won't be removable at the end of the lease). Smokey and Bandit split the rest of the cost between them.

Smokey and Bandit would each hold the asset under item 3 of the table in section 40-40 and Buford would hold it under item 10. They would be joint holders, so each would write-off its interest in the fountain.
