Starting Your Business Right
Understanding Tax Implications of Business Structures
All businesses operating in Australia must comply with the tax laws and regulations set by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and ensure that they file their tax returns and pay any taxes owed on time. The type and amount of taxes a business must pay depend on several factors, such as the business structure, the type of business, and the amount of income it generates.
As Chartered Accountants, our role is to help business owners and entrepreneurs identify and meet their tax obligations. We ensure their tax strategy is aimed at maximising returns, minimising tax, improving cash flow, and supporting wealth creation from their business or investment opportunities.
If you are starting a new business, it’s essential you understand that your tax obligations, amongst other things, will depend on your business structure. Therefore, selecting the right structure at the start of your business journey is critical and depends on your business needs, size, and objectives.
The most common business structures in Australia are:
- Sole Trader: this is the simplest form of business structure in Australia where an individual operates as the sole owner of the business.
- Partnership: a partnership involves two or more individuals who operate a business together and share profits and losses.
- Company: a company is a separate legal entity from its owners. It can be owned by shareholders and managed by directors.
- Trust: a trust is a business structure where the trustee holds property or assets or operates a business for the benefit of others (beneficiaries). A trustee can also be one of the beneficiaries.
Different business structures have different tax obligations and liabilities. For example, companies are required to pay corporate income tax on their profits, while sole traders and partnerships are taxed on their personal income. In addition to income tax, businesses may be required to pay goods and services tax depending on their specific circumstances. Some businesses may also be eligible for tax deductions and other benefits, such as tax credits, which can help reduce their overall tax liability.
In terms of liabilities, sole traders and partners are personally liable for the debts and liabilities of their businesses, meaning their personal assets can be used to pay business debts. On the other hand, in a company or trust, the liability is limited to the assets of the company or trust.
Finally, the cost of setting up and running a business structure varies. For example, sole traders and partnerships are generally cheaper to set up and run than companies and trusts.
Understanding the differences between business structures when setting up a new business is vital. It ensures your business objectives are met, and you are not subjected to unnecessary costs and requirements. As your accountants and business advisors, we can guide you in choosing the right structure for your new business.
