Budget: SMEs to write-off every asset purchase under $20,000*
Deduct Every Asset up to 20k
Australian small businesses with turnover below $2 million will be able to immediately deduct every asset they purchase valued up to $20,000.
The new threshold will be in place until the end of June 2017 and is designed to support small businesses to invest in new assets to grow their businesses.
How it Works
The $20,000 threshold applies to each individual asset and small businesses will be able to apply the $20,000 rule to as many individual assets as they want.
Most small capital purchases will be eligible for the new threshold, with the exception of assets that have specific depreciation rules, including in-house software and horticultural plants.
Assets above the $20,000 threshold can be added together in the existing simplified depreciation pool and depreciated at the same rate: 15% in the first income year and 30% thereafter.
