Accessing the small business CGT concessions remains a challenge. This paper covers the key areas where most uncertainties and challenges arise for taxpayers. In particular it focuses on:
- what is a liability for the purposes of the small business concessions and when does a liability relate to the CGT asset?
- various amendments have been made to overcome unintended anomalies, but have the amendments achieved their aim?
- dividend access shares post-TA 2012/4 and TD 2013/D5 – where do the pitfalls lie?
- how will the small business concessions interact with the proposed changes tothe taxation treatment of earnouts?
- incorporation of partnerships – are you shooting yourself in the foot?
- lastly, perhaps the most difficult area lies in determining the market value of CGTassets, in light of a raft of recent cases where the Commissioner has challengedthe taxpayer’s valuation of CGT assets.
