Are you considering buying a new asset for your business?
Recently the Federal Government increased the instant asset write-off threshold to $30,000 and extended the initiative to 30 June 2020.
So if you purchase a new or second-hand asset costing less than $30,000, and it is used or installed ready for use from 7:30pm AEDT on 2 April 2019, you can claim a deduction for the business portion. Different thresholds apply for assets purchased before that date:
- from 29 January 2019 until before 7.30pm AEDT on 2 April 2019, the threshold is $25,000.
- before 29 January 2019, the threshold is $20,000.
- You may purchase and claim a deduction for multiple assets provided each asset is under the relevant threshold.
Assets that cost $30,000 each or more can’t be immediately deducted. You can continue to deduct them over time using the small business pool.
From 2 April 2019, the instant asset write-off has also been expanded to include businesses with a turnover from $10 million to less than $50 million.
