Intangible fixed assets (ITFA) underwent a revolutionary change in taxation in April 2002 (now Pt 8, CTA 2009), and in recent years major changes to the deductions available for goodwill and customer related ITFA have meant that practitioners need to be aware of the following four sets of rules:

Pre-2002 regime Applies to ITFA created/acquired pre-April 2002
ITFA regime Applies to ITFA created/acquired post-April 2002 except for excluded ITFA
Relevant assets under s816A Applies to internally generated goodwill acquired on/after 3 December 2014 and all goodwill and customer related ITFA acquired after 8 July 2015 and before 1 April 2019
