Wherever you are in your business lifecycle, your tax profile, obligations and incentives are unique to your organisation, industry, operations, locations, even your future plans.

If you are just starting up, you will need to structure your business tax effectively and manage any employment tax issues. As your business grows and expands, so do your general and transactional tax obligations and compliance, including ATO audits and reviews.

If your ambitions include mergers and acquisitions or take you to other parts of the world, you will need to manage all tax implications for mergers and acquisitions, as well as the expatriate and international tax issues for the jurisdictions in which you plan to operate.

If you need to sell, there are tax implications dependent on your exit strategy, with capital gains rules to account for. Along the way, there are multiple incentives and rebates that are key to your cash flow and growth: from employee share schemes and government grants, to research and development incentives, GST and indirect tax, and other small business tax concessions.

And while your business lifecycle plays a key role in your tax profile, so too does your industry. Each sector has their own layer of tax to manage and incentives to tap into.

The tax team at Grant Thornton works alongside our clients at all stages of their business lifecycle – and through all major events for your organisation. We stay across the latest tax developments affecting your business and industry, which means our advice is current and comprehensive, and structured with a focus on efficiency and long-term sustainability.

All our teams are made up of industry experts and through our global network we can bring together local expertise for the jurisdictions that are key to your business and growth.
