Bankruptcy Capital Gains Tax (CGT) Income tax

Winding up your business - Opportunities and pitfalls

Source: South Australia

Published Date: 17 Oct 2013


This presentation looks at a range of issues that should to be considered when a decision has been made to sell or wind up a business. Most people think about capital gains tax implications however the matter can be far broader than simply minimising the impact of CGT.

This presentation explores the following key considerations:

  • whether the business assets or the entity should be sold
  • the MNAV test including valuation issues, liabilities and application of recent cases, what’s in and out and planning opportunities
  • what happens after the business is sold - use of retirement concession, liquidating the company/vesting the trust
  • what to do with loans and/or UPEs that exist
  • dealing with pre-CGT assets and reserves
  • Part IVA implications of certain planning decisions or structuring to get within the concessions (such as making trust distributions)
  • accounting implications (e.g. reserves for SB gains).
