21 May 09 Re-characterising capital losses as revenue losses - TA 2009/12

This Taxpayer Alert, which was released on 21 May 2009, describes an arrangement whereby taxpayers seek to re-characterise their shareholding status from that of a long term capital investor to a trader in shares. Taxpayers involved have claimed the CGT discount on previous receipts, but are now realising losses which they seek to claim as tax deductions against ordinary income (as opposed to capital losses which are only able to be offset against capital gains).
