Capital gains tax concessions for small business


Section: 12.1

There are four capital gains tax (CGT) small business concessions available for the sale of CGT assets used in a small business. This section will cover the basic conditions which must be satisfied and how to apply the CGT small business concessions. Each concession except for the small business 50% active asset reduction has additional conditions which must be satisfied. The small business 15 year exemption and retirement exemption interact with contributions to superannuation and offer a tax effective opportunity to build retirement savings.
