Terms we use
When we refer to 'you' or 'your business' in this guide, we are referring to you conducting a small business as:
- an individual (such as a sole trader)
- a partner in a partnership
- a company or a trust.
When we refer to 'your child', in this guide, we mean your child under 18 years.
We assume you have a basic understanding of how the CGT system works.
This guide deals with the special CGT concessions available to you as a small business entity, not with your personal CGT obligations.
