Extension of the Carry-Back Measure

Posted 24 Mar

12-month extension of the temporary loss carry-back measure


As announced in the 2020/2021 Federal Budget, legislation has now passed to allow eligible corporate entities (i.e., those with, amongst other things, an aggregated turnover of less than $5 billion) a 12-month extension to claim a loss carry-back tax offset in the 2023 income year.

The temporary loss carry-back rules were initially implemented in 2020 to promote economic recovery by providing cash flow support to previously profitable companies that fell into a tax loss position due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The law allows eligible companies to carry-back tax losses from 2020, 2021, 2022 and now the 2023 income year to previously-taxed profits in the 2019 or later income years. A company that does not elect to carry back losses under this temporary (yet extended) measure is still eligible to carry losses forward as usual.
