Under the Australian CGT scheme, a person who no longer has a home in Australia is normally taxed on unrealized profits of CGT assets held on that date, with assets other than taxable assets. However, a person who ceases to have an Australian-based tax may choose, at the time of departure, to either pay taxes (based on the difference between the market value of the non-taxable Australian assets at the time of departure and the cost base of those assets), or to defer tax on a possible profit until the effective disposal of these non-taxable Australian assets.
