Update May / June 2019
Instant Asset Write-Off Increased to $30k
The continuation and expansion of the small business instant asset tax write-off, that allows the cost of a newly acquired asset to be expenses instantly (rather than depreciated) for tax purposes.
Not only is the threshold for the asset value planned to go from $25,000 to $30,000, but business with a turnover of up to $50 million could now benefit (up from $10 million).
That’s good news for small businesses themselves, but also for their suppliers – the likes of Harvey Norman, Officeworks and a plethora of other office equipment retailer should gain from the move. In addition, the extra $5,000 will bring more vehicles under the cap, making it a potential boon for retailers of cars, utes and vans.
