What you need to know about CGT relief under the new super rules
There’s a lot of noise about the government’s new super reforms, but one garnering a lot of questions is the capital gains tax (CGT) relief offer. What it is and when it applies is creating a lot of confusion, so, let me set the record straight.
Almost 32 years ago, the CGT regime began in Australia. Investments purchased before 20 September 1985 were granted a special exemption from this new tax. But with changes to tax rates within super pensions applying from 1 July, instead of an exemption, this time the government is offering super funds a one-off CGT relief on certain investments – if they meet specific eligibility requirements.
