AUS: Small Business Entity Concessions

Small businesses can access a range of concessions including payment and reporting options. This applies to sole traders, partnerships, companies or trusts.

To qualify for these concessions, you’ll need to determine if your business is a ‘small business entity’ for the income year. You must review your eligibility each year.

From 1 July 2016, you are a small business entity if you are a sole trader, partnership, company or trust that:

  • operates a business for all or part of the income year, and
  • has an aggregated turnover less than $10 million (the turnover threshold)

From 1 April 2017, the turnover threshold for fringe benefits tax (FBT) concessions increased to $10 million.

The $10 million turnover threshold applies to most concessions, except for:

  • the small business income tax offset, which has a $5 million turnover threshold
  • the capital gains tax (CGT) concessions, which continue to have a $2 million turnover threshold

For previous income years, you are a small business if your turnover is less than $2 million.
