The small business restructure rollover ("SBRR") was announced in the 2015-16 Federal Budget as a means of reducing red-tape and providing greater flexibility for small businesses seeking to restructure their business by allowing them to disregard tax gains or losses that would otherwise be realised where business assets are transferred from one entity to another.
The SBRR legislation, together with recent ATO guidance (in the form of Law Companion Guides LCG 2016/2 and LCG 2016/3), seemingly reflects a rigidity to the provisions and small businesses seeking to restructure should tread carefully when considering whether to apply the new SBRR provisions.
This article highlights a number of examples which demonstrate the very technical nature of the provisions and cases where a restructure may not be acceptable under the provisions.
