  • New law changes - eligibility for lower company tax rate

    5 months ago

    Published 4 September 2018

    Changes to eligibility for the lower 27.5% company tax rate have received Royal Assent.

    To be eligible for the lower 27.5% company tax rate, from the 2017–18 income year a company needs to be a base rate entity, which is defined as having:

    • 80% or less of their assessable income as passive income. For example interest, dividends or rent. This recent change replaced the 'carrying on a business' requirement
    • an aggregated turnover less than $25 million (this turnover threshold increased to $50 million from 2018–19).

  • PROD Certificate renewal VANguard authentication.business.gov.au

    6 months ago

    Updated 13 August 2018
    Published 7 August 2018

    VANguard is changing the certificate authority for authentication.business.gov.au from Symantec to Digicert. If you have pinned to this certificate, you may need to install the new certificate to ensure continuity of service, depending on whether your application accepts new certificates without intervention or has implemented certificate pinning.

    The new VANguard authentication.business.gov.au certificate has been rescheduled for deployment on Tuesday 28 August 7.00pm AEST. The new certificate is now available for you to download from the SBR Share File (login required). Once the new certificate has been deployed it will replace the old certificate, and the old SSL certificate will no longer be used.

    To confirm you have obtained the correct certificate or if you have any questions, email the SBR Service Desk or phone 1300 488 231.

    For further information on how this affects you as a digital service provider, email the Digital partnership office.
