Case Study ACCG924 session 2 2014
a.)When Cut and Chop entered into a contract to sell the business premises on 1 May
2014, CGT event A1 occurred.(s104-10)
According to sec100-50, the net capital gain or net capital loss for the income year is calculated as follow:
Current year capital gain=capital proceeds-cost base or indexed cost base
In this case, the capital proceeds is 2.65 million (s116-20). Since the business premise is acquired on 1 June 2009 (after 21 September 1999) indexation method cannot be applied for calculating the cost base (Div 114). The cost base of the premise (s110-25) including purchase price (2.38million), incidental costs (s110-35) (legal fees $13500 and agents fees$45000). …show more content…

100*$10,000=1,000,000(s116-20). The cost base of the share was
100*$1,000=100,000 when they acquired the 100 shares at the price of $1000 each on
1 June 2001(s110-25). They are individuals and acquired the Shares after 21
September 1999. And they had hold the CGT assets for more than 12 moths. So they can have 50% discount (Div 114)
The net capital gain in respect of selling their shares in Cut and Chop will be
