CGT Accountant Melbourne

Get the facts on asset sales tax with a CGT accountant

Considering selling your small business or other large assets? Here in Australia, you can’t sell off a big asset like your business without being taxed, but it can be a little less frustrating if you know what you’re up for from the start. This is where having an accountant specialising in Capital Gains Tax is incredibly valuable. From possible exemptions, concessions or rollovers which may help reduce your liability, to restructuring of asset holdings, PCR’s CGT accountants provide you with tailored and comprehensive CGT advice.

Your CGT payment will vary, depending on:

  • If depreciation is claimed
  • If it is a small business

Melbourne's Leading CGT Accountant

Capital Gains Tax is the tax you pay when you sell a big asset, such as your business. But getting the right Capital Gains Tax advice is critical to ensuring you know what, when and how much you should pay.

Capital Gains Tax only applies to the sale of specific assets such as a business or investment properties, whereas your principal home, personal car or assets acquired before the 20th of September 1985, are exempt.

Fortunately, if it is a small business you have sold, there is a whole range of CGT concessions possibly available to you and options such as buying another asset to defer your Capital Gains or putting some into super to avoid paying capital gains tax. With our dedicated Capital Gains Tax services, you can feel prepared to sell your business.

Capital Gains Tax is paid each year and, contrary to what it might imply, isn’t actually a separate tax. It forms part of your assessable income and is payable as part of your income tax each year.

However, if you make a capital loss you won’t have to pay Capital Gains Tax, but it is important to note that it is unable to offset tax on any other income, and is instead ‘carried forward’ to offset capital gains in future income years.

CGT applies when you sell an asset, but can also happen if the asset is given away, destroyed or lost, or you are no longer an Australian resident. Our CGT accountants can make sure you’re paying it properly and help avoid any unwelcome surprises.

Calculating your Capital Gains Tax is complex, but there may be discounts and options like indexation which may be applicable, so it’s important to have a CGT accounting professional walk you through it and explore every avenue so you don’t waste money on tax unnecessarily or miscalculate your expected tax. PCR offer tailored CGT services for small business, so contact us today.

Not all Capital Gains are tangible, which is where this can get confusing. There can be a lot of intricate details in an event where you are only selling a part of the business, buying out a partner, altering your business structure and receiving compensation for lost or destroyed assets. Our dedicated CGT accountants will make sure all your bases are covered correctly.
