Issues regarding SMEs and group structures presentation


A common outcome of restructuring a business is the implementation of a corporate group involving at least the holding company and a wholly owned operating subsidiary. To fully access the benefits of the corporate group structure often requires the implementation of a tax consolidated group and a GST group.

This presentation examines the critical issues associated with forming a tax consolidated and GST group, including:

  • impact of the different CGT rollovers on the consolidations formation calculations
  • impact of not using CGT rollovers and relying on tax concessions such as the CGT small business concessions for the restructure
  • tax detriment that can result from the formation calculations including those from internally generated goodwill
  • opportunities to “uplift” the asset’s tax values
  • alternative restructure approaches to minimise the consolidations’ tax detriment
  • implications of the Part IVA rewrite.
