Small business income tax offset
The small business income tax offset can reduce the tax you pay by up to $1,000 each year.
To be eligible, you must be carrying on a small business as a sole trader or have a share of net small business income from a partnership or trust. The ATO has published the following table outlining the relevant turnover thresholds.
|Income year||Aggregated turnover threshold||Rate of offset||Maximum offset|
|2016–17 to 2019–20||$5m||8%||$1,000|
|2021–22 and onwards||$5m||16%||$1,000|
When determining whether you are entitled to the small business income tax offset, you need to determine your aggregated turnover.
Your aggregated turnover is generally your annual turnover plus the annual turnover of any business connected or affiliated with you.
