Government Push for Lower Company Tax Rate Succeeds

lower company tax rate

Businesses with a turnover up to $50 million will enjoy lower company tax rates in a deal finally stitched up last week by the Federal Government.

The multi-stage implementation of company tax cuts will see the current 30 percent rate for all businesses above $2 million in turnover reduce down to a rate of 27.5% as follows:

  • Businesses with turnover up to $10 million will pay 27.5 percent in this current financial year
  • Businesses with turnover up to $25 million will pay 27.5 percent from 1 July 2017
  • Businesses with turnover up to $50 million will pay 27.5 percent from the 2018-19 financial year

Small businesses with a turnover under $2 million currently pay 28.5 percent tax, and this will reduce to 27.5% from the current financial year.

The Government’s 10 year plan to introduce a flat rate tax cut of 25% for all businesses hasn’t been passed by the Senate, and looks unlikely to get through any time soon.
