1              Name of Determination [see Note 1]

                This Determination is the Income Tax (Effective Life of Depreciating Assets) Determination 2001.

2              Commencement

                This Determination is taken to have commenced on 1 July 2001.

3              Effective life of depreciating assets

         (1)   For subsection 40‑100 (1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, the effective life of depreciating assets is specified in Tables A and B.

         (2)   If the entity deducting an amount for a depreciating asset is using the asset in an industry specified in Table A, Tables A and B are to be used as follows:

                (a)    if the asset corresponds exactly to a description in Table A for the industry in which the asset is used, its effective life is the life specified for that asset;

               (b)    if the asset:

                          (i)    does not correspond exactly to a description in Table A for the industry in which the asset is used; but

                         (ii)    satisfies the general description of asset used in the functional process of that industry —

                        its effective life is the life specified in Table A for that class of asset;

                (c)    if:

                          (i)    paragraphs (a) and (b) do not apply to the asset; and

                         (ii)    the asset corresponds to a description in Table B —

                        its effective life is the life specified with that description.

Note   Table A is intended to describe assets:

·      that are peculiar to a particular industry; or

·      for which a particular effective life is appropriate because of the way in which a particular industry uses the asset.

The industry headings in Table A have, where possible, been drawn from the classification subject categories in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) Codes.

         (3)   If:

                (a)    the entity deducting an amount for a depreciating asset is not using the asset in an industry specified in Table A; and

               (b)    the asset corresponds to a description in Table B —

the effective life of the asset is the life specified with that description.

Note   If Tables A and B are not used, or cannot be used because:

·      the asset is not used in an industry specified in Table A; and

·      Table B has no description that corresponds to the asset —

the way to work out the effective life of the asset is explained in section 40‑105 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
