(1) Despite its repeal by this Act, Division 46 of the former Act continues to apply to expenditure on software that you incurred and that was in a software pool under that Division at the end of 30 June 2001.
(2) For a unit of software for which you were deducting amounts under Subdivision 46-B of the former Act or for which you could have deducted amounts under that Subdivision if you had used the software for the purpose of producing assessable income before 1 July 2001, Division 40 of the new Act applies to the unit on this basis:
(a) its cost is the amount of expenditure you incurred on the unit; and
(b) you must use the prime cost method; and
(c) its opening adjustable value at 1 July 2001 is its undeducted cost at the end of 30 June 2001; and
(d) you must use the same effective life you were using under Subdivision 46-B of the former Act or that you would have used if you had used the software for the purpose of producing assessable income before 1 July 2001.
