$30k Instant Asset Write-off
By Chris Burnett
You may have heard about the $30k instant asset write-off that the Federal Government introduced as part of their 2019-20 budget announcement which is now law and applies to certain purchases made before 30 June 2020.
With the end of the financial year only 11 days away its a good idea to check to see if your business and asset purchases could be eligible for an instant tax write off this year.
To help we’ve put together a checklist of the requirements that your business will need to meet before making a claim. For more information, please speak with us.
|Turnover <$50m||Your business is eligible if it turns over less than $50 million annually.|
|Cost <$30k||An asset is eligible for an instant deduction if it cost less than $30,000. |
If you are GST registered the $30,000 threshold applies to the GST
|Timing||The asset must have been purchased after 7:30pm 2 April 2019 and |
before 30 June 2020.
|Condition||The asset can be new or second-hand.|
|Total cost||The $30k threshold applies to the total cost – not just the business |
portion or the cost after trade-in.
|Ready to use||The asset must be purchased, installed and be ready to use to be able |
to claim the deduction.
|Set||Multiple assets that form part of a set may be considered a single asset.|
