The Treasury have announced the financial reporting thresholds for determining proprietary companies as ‘large’ have doubled, with the change effective 1 July 2019.

  • $25 million or more in consolidated revenue;
  • $12.5 million or more in consolidated gross assets; or

These ‘large’ proprietary companies are required to prepare and lodge a financial report, a director’s report and an auditor’s report with ASIC each financial year.
