1) For a company, what makes it large?
For proprietary companies, the Corporations Act 2001 defines whether a company is a large or small company.
A proprietary company is a large proprietary company if it meets at least 2 of the following:
Consolidated revenue of the company exceeds $25 million;
Consolidated gross assets of the company exceed $12.5 million at the end of the financial year;
Employees over 50 at the end of the financial year.
A small proprietary company will be any proprietary company that doesn’t meet the at least two of the above thresholds. A small proprietary company has reduced financial reporting requirements.
