- 2 January 2018
The write-off threshold of $20,000 has been extended to 30 June 2018.
If you buy an asset and it costs less than $20,000, you can immediately deduct the business portion in your tax return. The $20,000 threshold applied from 12 May 2015 and will reduce to $1,000 from 1 July 2018.
You are eligible to use simplified depreciation rules and claim the immediate deduction for the business portion of each asset (new or second hand) costing less than $20,000 if:
- you have a turnover less than $10 million, and
- the asset was first used or installed ready for use in the income year you are claiming it in.
Remember, registered tax agents and BAS agents can help you with tax advice.
