Qualifying Companies and Loss Attributing Qualifying Companies

Options for the small business owner.

What is the difference between Qualifying Companies and Loss Attributing Qualifying Companies and what are their advantages?

A Qualifying Company is a limited liability company that has elected to pay tax (if any) on its capital gains and net profits at the current company tax rate of 30% before paying tax-free dividends to it’s shareholders.

A Loss Attributing Qualifying Company is a Qualifying Company that has elected to pass its operating losses on to its shareholders so that they can offset the losses against their own income in order to pay less personal tax overall.

This is very common for companies which own rental properties to elect to be a Loss Attributing Qualifying Company, because rental properties often operate at a loss.

A Loss Attributing Qualifying Company is also a Qualifying Company; however a Qualifying Company is not automatically a Loss Attributing Qualifying Company.

Most companies elect to become a Loss Attributing Qualifying Company because it encompasses all potential tax advantages, regardless of whether the company makes a profit or a loss.

"it is utterly unfair that a debtor can get away with not paying, and often does simply because the creditor doesn't have the money (because the debtor didn't pay!) to go through all of this process. I'm sickened by the proceess which has seen me now not only being ripped off by this debtor, but then(and still) by the debt collector I folishly decided to use because I couldn't afford the intial legal fees (due to not being paid by the debtor!). Court has finally decided in our favor, but debtor still hasn't paid and I have to find more yet money to apply to have him liquidated, without any promise of getting anything back."
