Unwanted Company? CGT and Dividend Issues on Exiting Private Companies presentation


Companies are generally regarded as inappropriate vehicles for holding appreciating assets.

This presentation explores income tax and CGT issues arising from sale of a business and the voluntary liquidation of a private company and considers a number of practical issues including:
- the tax impact on pre and post CGT shareholdings
- what changes matter for a pre or post CGT business
- dividend distribution issues for interim and final distributions
- how the distribution affects pre CGT and tax-free amounts
- franking account issues under the new rules
- the operation of CGT concessions at the corporate level including the small business concessions
- eligibility at shareholder level for the 50% CGT discount
- treatment of the capital proceeds for the cancellation of shares, including the associated dividend issues.
