Company Tax Rates

The Government has confirmed its intention to eventually reduce the company tax rate to 25 percent for all companies. This is a positive move to keep Australia competitive with our international trading partners, however, the challenge for the current Government is to get these proposed laws through parliament having already encountered significant opposition.

The following table provides a summary of the proposed company tax rate changes and note the timing of the changes and the qualifying turnover thresholds. Note, these changes are yet to be approved by the House of Representatives.

Tax Rate










2019/20 to 2024












Please note, the proposed decrease in the company tax rate and the increase in the qualifying turnover threshold for small businesses will not apply if you operate your business through a family trust and distribute profits to a corporate beneficiary. In this instance, the company is not classified as a business and therefore the applicable tax rate will remain at 30%.
