Case Study

Adrian, a dedicated builder, operates his construction business through his company. In need of additional funds for personal purposes, he decided to borrow $500,000 from his own company. To ensure compliance with Division 7A tax regulations, Adrian set up a Division 7A complying loan agreement. As part of this agreement, there’s a minimum yearly repayment of approximately $85,000 due on 30 June. To meet this personal financial obligation efficiently, Adrian opted for a strategic approach: offsetting the minimum repayment against a fully franked dividend paid by his company to himself on 30 June 2022.
While the strategy seems straightforward, many individuals mistakenly believe that processing a journal entry alone is sufficient to demonstrate the offset and ensure compliance. This misconception can lead to potential issues, particularly during ATO reviews or audits, as there’s no concrete evidence to prove that the offset genuinely occurred by the deadline.
To navigate this challenge and guarantee compliance, Adrian implemented a well-thought-out strategy:

Calculate the Minimum Repayment: Adrian began by calculating the minimum repayment due on 30 June 2022.
Director’s Resolution: He obtained a director’s resolution, officially declaring the dividend by 30 June 2022 and confirming the company’s intention to offset it against the minimum repayment.
Deed of Offset: Adrian and his company entered into a deed of offset, clearly outlining their agreement to offset the dividend against the minimum yearly repayment. Both Adrian, as the individual shareholder and borrower, and the company’s director, signed this deed, and it was dated by 30 June 2022.
Post-30 June Actions: After 30 June, Adrian’s company issued a dividend statement/distribution statement to ensure proper framing of the dividend. This was done within the required timeframe of four months from the financial year-end (by 31 October 2022). Subsequently, the company processed the necessary journal entries to eliminate the repayment against the dividend.

Thanks to this meticulous strategy, Adrian successfully offset the fully franked dividend against the minimum yearly loan repayment within the stipulated timeframe. All financial records and documentation aligned with Division 7A compliance, providing a clear and irrefutable trail of the offset.
By following this strategy, Adrian minimized the risk of tax-related issues and deemed dividends that could have arisen in the absence of proper documentation. His tax compliance remained robust, reducing the likelihood of unfavorable outcomes during tax reviews or audits.
Adrian’s experience underscores the importance of precise documentation and adherence to Division 7A compliance guidelines.
