What is a fair market value?

According to a snippet extracted from the ATO…

Source: https://www.ato.gov.au/Individuals/Capital-gains-tax/Market-valuation-of-assets/


Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. (Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) External Link 116 – Property, plant and equipment.)
Fair value can be measured in reference to the:

  • quoted market price in an active and liquid market, if available
  • current or recent market prices for the same asset or similar assets
  • net present value (if an established cash flow can be identified)
  • depreciated replacement cost – for specialised assets that are not traded in an active and liquid market.
