A practical guide to the new corporate tax landscape.
The announcement of cuts to the tax rate for small companies a few years ago must have seemed like good news at the time but it came with a sting in the tail. With a series of rolling cuts to the tax rates for small companies, changing definitions of what constitutes a small company, the introduction of new definitions as to which companies can use the new lower rates and flow on effects to company shareholders receiving franked dividends, the new rules have in practice substantially increased the level of complexity for SBE’s and their advisers.
Drawing on material from the newly updated Australian Practical Tax Examples book, this webinar takes a step by step approach to understanding the new rules, explaining how the changes impact both companies and their shareholders. We will work through examples taken from the book, explaining how tax law and administrative practice applies to real life situations.
Examples are deliberately framed to reflect real life client situations and issues that you might encounter on a daily basis, as well as some of the more complex and unusual outcomes that can apply.
During the webinar, you will be guided through theory and practical worked examples illustrating the following issues:
Working out the correct rate of corporate tax
Working out the correct franking rate
What is a base rate entity?
What is passive income?
How are shareholder taxed on dividends?
Attendees can expect to complete the webinar with a detailed understanding of the new corporate tax landscape with a particular emphasis on the changes impacting smaller corporate clients and their shareholders.
