    So if it was my primary residence, then a rental and we sell it within 6 years without moving back into it we are exempt?

    Like i said, I'm not an accountant, but that's how i understand it works. If you google ATO, CGT and main residence you should find info - sorry, on my phone.

    the moving back is to "reset the clock" and buy yourself another 6 years. if you want to sell the property, so long as the period it was rented is less than 6 years, you'll have full access to the main residence exemption.
