Fact or fiction? A sustainable tax transparent form for closely held businesses in Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Currently a comprehensive review is being undertaken of the Australian tax system (the Henry Review).1 One of the potential reforms to be considered by the Henry Review is a proposal by the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and Deloitte for the introduction of a tax transparent company (the ICAA proposal).2 The ICAA proposal argues that tax transparency applying to closely held corporations and unit trusts will reduce their compliance burden and facilitate an enhanced tax system for micro-enterprises. If the claims made in the ICAA proposal are accurate, it could be contended that a tax transparent company provides a more sustainable tax system for closely held businesses in Australia.
