Abstract:

On 23 December 2008, the Minister for Superannuation and Corporate Law announced that the Government will provide an optional capital gains tax (CGT) roll over for capital losses arising from CGT events happening under a complying superannuation fund’s merger with an APRA regulated superannuation fund with at least five members. The Minister for Superannuation and Corporate Law also indicated that the Government would undertake consultation on the design of the amendments and that Treasury would initially release a consultation paper in January 2009.
