Rural Business Structures 2021 - 11 February 2021 (On Demand)


Like any business, it is essential that the ownership structure chosen is appropriate from a commercial, wealth accretion, estate planning and taxation perspective. Any business structure needs to provide certainty for the owners, but also enough flexibility should circumstances change in the future.

In many respects a rural business is no different to any other business in terms of what structure is appropriate. However, unlike most businesses, the owner/operator of a rural business lives on the business premises. This creates a variety of unique issues that need to be considered when determining what business structure is appropriate.

During the webinar Tony will discuss a number of case studies where he will work through the issues to be considered when adopting a variety of different business structures including:

  • Equity “Partnerships” – Should I use a company or limited partnership?
  • Restructuring an existing business structure
  • Funding structures
  • Does restructuring constitute tax avoidance – does the Penny & Hooper decision have application to rural business structures?
  • The impact of the 39% tax rate from 1 April 2021


11 February 2021
