IMPORTANT NOTICE: Recent CGT law changes affecting non-residents and off-shore owners
Non-residents and offshore owners of Australian property have been impacted by changes in the 2012 federal budget handed down by the Labour Government. The changes which took affect at 7:30pm on the 8 May 2012, will see the 50 per cent capital gains tax (CGT) discount removed for non-resident individuals who hold interests in Australian property. Individuals impacted by the changes can still claim the CGT discount for capital gains accrued prior to 8 May 2012. We strongly recommend those affected by this change obtain a capital gains tax valuation report to mitigate rising capital gains tax requirements now being imposes on off-shore and non-resident investors.
What is capital gains tax?
Capital gains tax (CGT) is applicable to all investment real estate (and other investment asset classes) purchased or acquired after September 1985. The tax is charged when you sell your property or asset and it has increased in value from the time of its acquisition. Conversely if the value of your asset has decreased from the time you purchased to the time you sold the investment it is considered a capital loss. Investors need to determine the increase or decrease in value over the holding period to calculate the capital gain tax implications.
What is a capital gains tax valuation report?
A capital gains tax valuation report is used to help identify the capital increase or decrease of your property asset. The valuation can be current or retrospective. Current valuations are used to determine the value of your asset in the current market. A retrospective valuation is used to determine the value at a previous date or point in time.
