Fairer remuneration for a business with a mixture of associated employees and investors
CLIENT CASE STUDY:
We have provided advice for all types of businesses with different structures and stakeholders. Recently we provided advice on fairer remuneration for a business with a mixture of associated employees and investors in order to ensure all parties to the business were receiving appropriate compensation for their work performed and risk.
What did we do?
Firstly, we worked with all associates within the Company to quantify their expectations – what was the current market value for their role? and how much did each party really need from the business?
Once we knew this information, we were able to do some financial modelling to derive the optimal combination of salary and dividends. This methodology factors in the business’ financial position and also best utilises any company taxes paid to date.
We were able to reduce salary burden, increase cashflow, and eliminate payroll taxes for this company. There is also the human element to this case that everyone within the structure feels that they are being adequately rewarded for their contribution to the business.
Division 7A Issues
CLIENT CASE STUDY:
Division 7A issues can easily occur within business accounts when owners draw monies without running through payroll and paying super.
Simply ignoring Division 7A loan balance can be very costly as the ATO can assess a deemed unfranked dividends which can significantly increase your tax bill!
Unfortunately, we see quite a few of these problems arise in our client’s accounts as often they do not understand the problem or the implications. Luckily, we can often solve this by examining any existing franking account balances or end of year adjustments. We work through multiple scenarios to find what blend of wages, franked and unfranked dividends and other forms of remuneration will yield the best result for you, our client, and your business, while still avoiding the potentially detrimental impacts of Division 7A.
