Instant asset write-off for small businesses extended and increased

Small businesses will get an extra tax break following the recent announcement by the Government that the instant asset write-off scheme will be extended to 30 June 2020 for assets purchased under $25,000 in value.

Small businesses will be able to immediately deduct assets costing less than $25,000 instead of claiming deductions over a number of years. The new increased threshold of $25,000 applies from 29 January 2019 (instead of $20,000). There is no limit on how many assets can be claimed.

Tip!

A helpful tip from the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman, Kate Carnell: “Small and family businesses need to remember that this is a tax deduction, not a rebate. So you need to have sufficient profit to write off the new asset against.”
