                     (b)  in existence on 1 July 2013; and

                     (c)  to which section 247‑85 does not apply.

                     (a)  the Reserve Bank of Australia’s Indicator Lending Rate for Standard Variable Housing Loans at that time; and

             (5)  If:

247‑85  Extensions and other changes

             (1)  This section applies to a capital protected borrowing entered into at or before the 2008 Budget time (including one covered by Subdivision 247‑A or section 247‑75) where, after that time, one or both of these events occurred:

                     (a)  the term of the capital protected borrowing is extended;

                     (b)  some other change is made to the terms and conditions of the capital protected borrowing.

               (a)     a dwelling that is your main residence; or

              (b)     a dwelling that passed to you as a beneficiary, or trustee, of a deceased estate;

to the extent that the land was used primarily for private or domestic purposes in association with the dwelling.

There is a limit on the maximum area of land covered by the exemption.

Note:          The exemption may not apply in full if the dwelling:

(a)    was not always a main residence; or

(b)    was used for the purpose of producing assessable income.

118‑245  CGT events happening only to adjacent land

Total adjacent land is 2 hectares or less

             (1)  A *capital gain or *capital loss you make from a *CGT event that happens in relation to land (the exempt land), or your *ownership interest in it, is disregarded if:

                     (a)  you are an individual; and

                     (b)  the exempt land is all or part of a *dwelling’s *adjacent land at the time of the CGT event; and

                     (c)  the CGT event does not happen in relation to the dwelling and does not happen in relation to your ownership interest in the dwelling; and

                     (d)  one of the following subparagraphs applies:

                             (ii)  your ownership interest in the dwelling *passed to you as a beneficiary in a deceased estate;

                            (iii)  you own your ownership interest in the dwelling as the trustee of a deceased estate; and

                      (f)  the sum of the following is 2 hectares or less:

                              (i)  the area of all of the dwelling’s adjacent land at the time of the CGT event;

                             (ii)  the area of the land immediately under the dwelling;

                            (iii)  if this section applied to you for an earlier CGT event that involved reducing the area of the dwelling’s adjacent land at the time of that earlier CGT event—that reduction in area.

Note:          You may get only a partial exemption for the gain or loss (see section 118‑260).

Total adjacent land is more than 2 hectares

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  apart from paragraph (1)(f), subsection (1) would apply to the gain or loss; and

                     (b)  you choose this subsection to apply to the gain or loss;

disregard so much of the gain or loss that relates to land (the exempt land) within the *maximum exempt area for the *CGT event and the *dwelling.

Note:          You may get only a partial exemption for this portion of the gain or loss (see section 118‑260).

118‑250  Compulsory acquisitions of adjacent land

             (1)  This section applies to the *CGT event and the exempt land if the CGT event involves:

                     (a)  the compulsory *acquisition of the exempt land by:

                             (ii)  an entity under a power conferred by an *Australian law; or

                     (b)  you *disposing of the exempt land to an entity in circumstances meeting all of these conditions:

                              (i)  the disposal takes place after a notice was served on you by or on behalf of the entity;

                             (ii)  the notice invited you to negotiate with the entity with a view to the entity acquiring the exempt land by agreement;

                            (iii)  the notice informed you that if the negotiations were unsuccessful, the exempt land would be compulsorily acquired by the entity;

                            (iv)  the compulsory acquisition would have been under a power of compulsory acquisition conferred by an Australian law.

             (3)  This section applies to the *CGT event and the exempt land if the CGT event involves:

                     (a)  an interest or right in or relating to the exempt land being compulsorily conferred on:

                              (i)  an *Australian government agency; or

                             (ii)  an entity under a power conferred by an *Australian law; or

                     (b)  you conferring on an entity an interest or right in or relating to the exempt land in circumstances meeting all of these conditions:

                            (iii)  the notice informed you that if the negotiations were unsuccessful, an interest or right in or relating to the exempt land would be compulsorily conferred on the entity under a power conferred by an Australian law.

Note:          For paragraph (b), the entity may be an Australian government agency.

             (4)  This section applies to the *CGT event and the exempt land if:

                     (a)  your *ownership interest in the exempt land:

118‑255  Maximum exempt area

                   Your maximum exempt area for the *CGT event and the *dwelling is 2 hectares less the amount worked out as follows:

Method statement

Step 1.   Identify each earlier *CGT event (if any) that:

               (a)     happened in relation to land that was part of the *dwelling’s *adjacent land at the time of the earlier CGT event, or happened in relation to your *ownership interest in that land at that time; and

              (b)     resulted in you losing rights to the substantial use and enjoyment of that land either completely or for at least 10 years;

              for which you made a *capital gain or *capital loss that was wholly or partly disregarded because of the application of subsection 118‑245(2).

Step 2.   For each earlier *CGT event covered by step 1, work out the area of the exempt land for that application of subsection 118‑245(2).

Step 3.   Add the results from step 2 to the area of the land immediately under the *dwelling.

118‑260  Partial exemption rules

             (1)  If section 118‑245 applies to a *CGT event, the amount of the *capital gain or *capital loss that you would have made apart from this section from the CGT event is increased by an amount that is reasonable having regard to the following:
