D’Omkara Knowledge 💰 May Edition

The New Directors ID

Inside this month, we look at the new lifetime Director ID regime and what it will mean to existing and new directors, the impending CGT exemption for granny flat arrangements, and the questions we get on SMSF expenses and investments that are not at arm’s length.

Directors will be required to register for a unique identification number that they will keep for life, much like a tax file number under a rewrite of Australia’s business registers. We explore how and why.

To protect older Australians, the Government has moved to formalise ‘granny flat arrangements’ by providing an incentive to protect all parties in the arrangement. We look at how the exemption is likely to work and the issues it seeks to resolve.

D’Omkara – Federal Budget 2021


The 2021-22 Federal Budget is a balancing act between a better than anticipated deficit ($106bn), an impending election, and the need to invest long term.

It is also a human budget (cynics would say voter focused), with $17.7 billion dedicated to aged care, more money in the pockets of low income earners, the COVID vaccine rollout, $2 billion for mental health, a women’s economic package including a child care subsidy increase and funding to prevent violence, and a Royal Commission into defense and veteran suicide.

Key initiatives include:

  • Extension of temporary full expensing and loss-carry back providing immediate deductions for business investment in capital assets
  • Introduction of a ‘patent box’ offering tax concessions on income derived from medical and biotech patents
  • Tax and investment incentives for the digital economy
  • Extension of the low and middle income tax offset
  • Child care subsidy increase for families with multiple children
  • $17.7 billion over 5 years to reform aged care
  • $2.3 billion on mental health infrastructure and programs
  • New and extended home ownership programs for first home owners and single parents.

We have partnered with Knowledge Shop to bring you a comprehensive guide on the 2021-22 Federal Budget, and its biggest winners.
