    The rules covering the small business retirement exemption are contained in Subdivision 152-D of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

For an individual choosing the retirement exemption, there is no requirement to terminate any activity or cease business. This concession allows you to provide for your retirement. Also, CGT concession stakeholders receiving payments under the retirement exemption are not required to terminate their employment with the company or trust.
