What Is a Partnership Tax Return and Why Do You Need It?

A partnership is a type of business structure where two or more people share the ownership, management, and profits of the business. A partnership is not a separate legal entity and does not pay tax on its income. However, it still needs to lodge a partnership tax return at the end of each financial year. The partnership tax return shows the assessable income, allowable expenses, and deductions of the partnership, as well as the share of net income or loss for each partner. Each partner then needs to include their share of income or loss in their personal tax return and pay tax at their individual tax rate.

What Are the Benefits and Drawbacks of a Partnership Tax Return?

A partnership tax return has some advantages and disadvantages compared to other business structures, such as:

  • It is easy and cheap to set up and maintain a partnership business and report capital gains at the partner level.
  • It has minimal legal and compliance requirements and allows flexibility in decision making and profit sharing.
  • It reduces the burden of superannuation and workers’ compensation for the partners.
  • However, it also exposes the partners to unlimited liability for the debts and obligations of the partnership, as well as any misconduct or negligence by other partners.
  • It does not provide any asset protection or tax planning opportunities for the partners, who are taxed at their marginal tax rates.
  • It may also create conflicts or disputes among the partners over the management, control, or distribution of the partnership.
