business planMany of our business clients like to review their tax position at the end of the income year and evaluate any year-end strategies that may be available to legitimately reduce their tax. Traditionally, year-end tax planning for small businesses is based around two simple concepts: accelerating business deductions and deferring income.

Small Business Entities (SBEs) have greater access to year-end tax planning due to particular concessions that only apply to them. Taxpayers that qualify as an SBE can generally choose which of the concessions they wish to use each year. The basic requirement to be eligible for most of the SBE concessions for the year ending 30 June 2018 is that the business taxpayer’s annual turnover (including related entities) is less than $10 million.
