No concession - aggregation (s. 30) procedure

Follow this procedure to help you lodge a section 30 aggregated transaction using OSRconnect when a home concession is not being claimed. If your transaction includes a concession claim, see the section 30 aggregation with concession procedure for instructions.

You cannot enter aggregations into OSRconnect where the total interest acquired is less than 1 and a concession is being claimed - send these to us for assessment.

Use our aggregated transactions toolkit for information.

Try our interactive tool to see if aggregation applies to your transactions.

You will need to enter each aggregated transaction separately into OSRconnect.

Note: The fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.
