Fantastic News, there is an increase to the aggregated turnover threshold to $10 million for access to small business tax concessions from 2016-17.  This means that any businesses with an aggregated turnover of under $10 million can now access a raft of concessions previously only accessible to small businesses under $2 million.  The main concession left out is access to the small business CGT concessions, which still requires the entity to pass a $2 million turnover test or a $6m net asset value test.

There are progressive reductions in the corporate tax rate for businesses with a turnover under $50 million. Businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million will benefit from a company tax reduction to 27.5% this financial year.

For unincorporated businesses such as sole traders, partnerships and trusts there is an increase to the aggregated turnover threshold to $5 million (up from $2 million) for access to the small business income tax offset from 2016-17, and an increase to the unincorporated small business tax discount to 8% from 2016-17. The offset will be capped at $1,000.

The piece de resistance is an immediate tax write off for assets less than $20,000 for those businesses with less than $10 million turnover. This has just been extended in the Budget to 30 June 2018. This is not gold but for us accountants, advising our clients, it comes close
