Trading under the right structure.

Whether that be a Partnerships, Company, Trust or other It is important you get this right and make sure the business name and ABN are in the right structure as well. Choose wisely to determine what the best tax rates are under these structures.

Payroll Tax

Yes, it is a dirty word! However, make sure you aren’t paying too much. A lot of people just think this is a simple calculation and send the payment to the State Government. You need to make sure you have the calculation right, including allowances, LAFH. travel etc.

Instant Asset Depreciation

Under the instant asset write-off, eligible businesses can claim an immediate deduction for the business portion of the cost of an asset in the year the asset is first used, or installed ready for use.

Instant asset write-off can be used for:

  • multiple assets as long as the cost of each individual asset is less than the relevant threshold
  • new and second-hand assets

Counting Stock

How do you need to count stock?

  1. At the lowest cost; or
  2. At net realisable value


If an item has been sitting on the shelf for a long time there is a chance the value is lower than the cost. Therefore, lower value and therefore lower tax. It is wise to keep a track of stock and see what it is. Normally, high stock will mean less money in the bank. Small business does have some simplification with stock adjustments of $5,000 or less.
