When you sell an asset like real estate or shares you will either make a capital gain or a capital loss. If you make a capital gain then the Australian Tax office (ATO) requires you to report that capital gain. When you report the capital gain it is added to your taxable income however it is not actually a separate tax.

Generally speaking, our valuations related to CGT are backdated or retrospective. In simple terms this means that we backdate the valuation to a particular point in time. To undertake a retrospective valuation we research the local market at a previous point in time and review the wider market. We also consider the value of the property at the time it was purchased. Once we’ve determined the value as per the sale deed or the sale agreement, we will couple that with the current valuation and the difference between the two amounts will determine the CGT payable.Why book today?
