"What have you got" - is it still a pre-CGT asset? presentation


Sure, the asset was acquired more than 20 years ago, but is that enough to retain its pre-CGT exempt status?

This can be impacted by:

  • an evolving and expanding business from pre-CGT goodwill
  • capital improvements to pre-CGT properties and other assets and/or
  • changes in underlying ownership of pre-CGT assets owned through interposed entities
  • the implications of intervening restructures.
