Small business company tax rate

Small business company tax rate

31 July 2015 PKF Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors

Parliament has passed legislation which will implement a 2015 Budget measure to reduce the company tax rate from 30% to 28.5% for companies that are small business entities with an aggregated turnover of less than $2 million. The company tax rate for corporate unit trusts and public trading trusts that are small business entities will also be reduced to 28.5%. For all other companies that are not small business entities, the corporate tax rate will remain at 30%.

Importantly and also announced in the Budget, the maximum franking credit that can be allocated to a frankable distribution will be unchanged, so the same rate of 30% will continue to apply to all companies.

The amendments will apply for the first income year beginning on or after 1 July 2015 and for subsequent income years.
