Step 9 Applying the small business CGT concessions

Last updated 18 February 2018

If you are a small business owner, you may qualify for one or more of the following small business CGT concessions: the 50% active asset reduction, small business rollover relief or the small business retirement exemption. You can apply these concessions now to the amount of any relevant capital gains remaining after step 8. You may apply the concessions to capital gains calculated using any of the three methods.

Businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $2 million can now access the small business CGT concessions via the small business entity test for the CGT purposes. This will also apply to:

  • taxpayers that do not carry on a business but own a CGT asset used in a business by a related entity
  • an individual partner who owns a CGT asset used in the partnership business.
