In the recent Federal Budget changes arising from the Board of Taxation’s post implementation review of the small business CGT concessions were announced, together with a new significant stakeholder test. This paper re-examines the small business CGT concessions from a practical perspective, highlighting some of the proposed changes and considering the traps that practitioners must continue to monitor. The paper considers:
- can a taxpayer’s structure result in a failure to satisfy the threshold tests?
- is there an active asset?
- what does need to be included in the maximum net asset value test?
- how does the connection test operate?
- what are the compliance traps?
- what are the implications of choosing some concessions over others?
