926.This section is based on section 78(2) and (2A) of CAA 1990. It applies to a beneficiary of a deceased person who succeeds to a qualifying activity under a will or intestacy and acquires plant or machinery as part of the succession. It permits the beneficiary to make an election to treat the transfer as being at the lower of either market value or the amount left in the pool. It also treats the plant or machinery as if it was sold to the beneficiary when the succession takes place.
