Circumstances/Transactions:

Allows for the aggregation of certain dutiable transactions.

Dutiable transactions relating to separate parts of dutiable property are aggregated and treated as a single dutiable transaction if they give effect to or arise from what is substantially one arrangement.

Revenue Ruling DA026 (version 2) outlines how we will apply the aggregation rules.
