Step 8 Applying the small business CGT concessions



This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

End of attention

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 7. You may apply the concessions to capital gains calculated using any of the three methods.

Note: Businesses with turnover of less than $2 million can now access the small business CGT concessions via the small business entity test concession. This will 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 (not an interest in an asset of the partnership) used in the partnership business.
