There are quite a few changes in the wind that small businesses need to know about from July 1st to stay on the right side of the tax man. Small changes around company taxation, business deductions and superannuation can have a big impact on the way you run your business, so it’s crucial you get the facts and plan ahead. Read on for what’s changing on 1 July!

  • Company tax rate reduces to 26% for base rate entities
  • $150k instant asset write-off scheduled to reduce back to $1,000 for small business entities and will no longer be available for entities with aggregated annual turnover of $10m or more, although accelerated depreciation rules apply to certain entities until 30 June 2021
  • Cents per km rate for work-related car expenses increases to 72 cents
  • Expected reforms to allow 66 and 67 years olds to make voluntary superannuation contributions without satisfying the work test. This reform is not yet law.
  • Age limit for making superannuation contributions to your spouse increases from 69-74. This reform is not yet law.
  • For those 67 and under, reforms will enable you to use the ‘bring forward rule’ to make up to three years of non-concessional contributions. That is, you can make non-concessional contributions of up to $300,000 from the 2020-21 financial year.
