This seminar paper considers the various alternatives for structuring closely held and family owned businesses with a view to maximising access to the CGT Concessions. Specifically the paper covers:
- structuring to maximise asset protection
- structures for holding investments either negatively or positively geared
- comparison of structures suitable for family owned business as compared with 'partnerships' between unrelated parties
- issues with repatriating the concessions to the underlying beneficial owners.
