The proposed company tax cut is a sweetener designed to benefit Australian businesses. However, its practical implications and likely impact have left many advisers concerned. This session examines the benefits and shortcomings of the tax cut, including:

  • Small business entities reduced tax rates and new imputation rules
  • Changes to the turnover thresholds and projected tax rate reductions
  • When does a company carry on a business - why is this a necessary consideration?
  • What is the position for passive investment companies and corporate beneficiaries?
  • Who benefits? - Residency issues for companies
  • Administrative issues - franking credit management and PAYG issues
  • Overcoming the rate reduction conundrums -  paying dividends early
  • Company tax cut - the reduction in value of franking credits

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
