Australian Capital Gains Tax considerations

A Scentre Group Stapled Security comprises four separate assets for capital gains tax purposes (one Scentre Group Limited share, one Scentre Group Trust 1 unit, one Scentre Group Trust 2 unit and one Scentre Group Trust 3 unit). For capital gains tax purposes you need to apportion the cost of each Stapled Security and the proceeds on sale of each Stapled Security over the separate assets that make up the Stapled Security. This apportionment should be done on a reasonable basis. One possible method of apportionment is on the basis of the relative Net Tangible Assets of the individual entities.
