1.1.T.103 Total net investment loss (CSHC)

Definition

For the purposes of CSHC, a person's total net investment loss is the sum of their net loss from financial investments and rental property.

The amount of total net investment loss is treated by the ATO as a deduction from a person's other assessable income in deriving their taxable income. This is not the case within the social security system.

In determining an individual's total net investment loss, the amount of the deductions are those allowed by the ATO.
