Arbitrage strategies - Remuneration of business owners

Source: Taxation In Australia Journal Article

Published Date: 1 May 2016


The question of how to best remunerate a business owner is a subset of a larger set of questions around the broader wealth extraction strategy for a business owner in a small-to-medium business. This article focuses on how wealth is to be extracted while the owner is working in the business, and what plans are in place for how it is to be extracted on ultimate exit of that owner from the business. This article also considers the factors in determining the most effective way in which to do this while being mindful of the business owner's exit plan. The focus is on companies. However, similar considerations may apply to businesses operating through trusts. This article also addresses tax and other related issues to be considered when planning and implementing a business owner's wealth extraction strategy.
