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
- Owner/Operator adjustments
- 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
