Technically Speaking: “What is a small business for CGT small business concession purposes?”

The SMSF Association’s Head of Policy, Jordan George, has written this issue of Technically Speaking on CGT small business concessions. These tax concessions can assist your clients in making significant contributions to superannuation to grow their retirement savings.

This paper will cover, in-depth, the two tests that a taxpayer must satisfy in order to be defined as a “small business entity” to access the small business concessions:

  • they must be carrying on a business; and
  • have less than a $2 million aggregated turnover.
