If the asset is still pre-CGT, does that mean all dealings with it are CGT exempt? This paper considers the impact of the following direct and indirect dealings with pre-CGT assets:
- creating new interests in pre-CGT assets
- disposals of pre-CGT shares in companies and units in unit trusts
- implications of restructures and roll-overs
- interaction with the CGT SME concessions; and/or impacts of death
- proper accounting for pre-CGT capital profits reserves (particularly for companies re: liquidations outcomes)
- restructuring and preserving pre-CGT status - CGT roll-overs (eg. different outcomes under scrip for scrip vs demergers).
