2015 / 16 Budget

CGT roll-over relief is currently available for individuals who incorporate, but other entity type changes have the potential to trigger a CGT liability. From 1 July 2016, the government will allow small businesses with an aggregated annual turnover of less than $2 million to change legal structure without attracting a CGT liability at that point. This measure recognises that new small businesses might choose an initial legal structure that they later find does not suit them when the business is more established.
