On 23 December 2008, the former Minister for Superannuation and Corporate Law announced that, with effect from 24 December 2008, the government will provide an optional CGT roll-over for capital losses arising from CGT events happening under a complying superannuation fund's merger with an Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) regulated superannuation fund with at least five members before 1 July 2010. Legislation for this measure was introduced on 25 November 2009 and is contained in Tax Laws Amendment (2009 Measures No 6) Bill 2009.
