Toilet Flange

I need to replace the sub floor around my toilet. The flange is mounted to the sub floor. Would it be better to mount it on top the finished floor. The sub is 3/4 ply and I plan on 1/2 ply finished and mounting the flange on top of that.

Are you going to cover the 1/2 ply or is that going to be your finished floor?

Normally the flange would go on top of the subfloor..like it is now,..."The flange is mounted to the sub floor." - but is this original flange removeable?? It may not be..as it may be part of/or welded to the waste line...especially if its the soft lead type of old.
If that be the case then you'd need a flange extender.. to mounted ontop of the old flange.
In my case, I had to use an extender to raise the flange closer to my finished floor which is cork planking and then I used the 'No-Seep #1 wax ring with the rubber cone on it...to fit into the flange and opening...

The proper installation of a toilet flange is on the top of the finished floor, lots of luck.
