The Business Adviser: June 2014 

In this edition of the Business Adviser, we focus on the issues you need to consider – especially in light of the announced changes to tax rates and thresholds. With a 2 percent 'temporary' levy applicable to taxpayers subject to the highest marginal rate of tax from 1 July 2014, astute 2014 tax planning is essential.

We also highlight some of the key issues faced by our clients, including succession planning and the need to protect your most valuable asset – your key people.



  • Federal Budget update
    A quick snapshot of the key features of the Federal Budget.
  • Year End Taxation and Superannuation
    As we approach year end, there are a number of matters that need to be considered from both tax and superannuation perspectives.
  • Increased penalty regime for SMSF Trustees
    The government has enacted reforms to improve the integrity of the superannuation system. The ATO has been granted more flexible and proportionate powers to deal with contraventions made by Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) trustees.
  • Stumbling blocks of family business succession
    While it’s not always top-of-mind for business owners, succession planning is critical to ensuring the long-term success and value of the family business.
  • Residency and taxation
    As income tax obligations in Australia depend on a person’s tax residency, it is important to determine residency on an annual basis according to the facts of the particular income year.
  • Protecting your most valuable asset – your key people
    One of the most important assets in any business, whether you run a corner café or a large international corporation, are the key people who run your business.
