Small Business Support – Still not law!  

Small Business Support

The Federal Government announced in the 2023-24 Federal Budget that it would increase cash flow and reduce compliance costs to small businesses by increasing the instant asset write-off threshold to  $20,000 from 1 July 2023 until 30 June 2024.  

Note that this measure is still not law.  

The budget announcement was on 9 May 2023, almost 12 months ago….and it is still not law!

What is “instant asset write-off”?  

Small businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million will be able to claim an immediate tax deduction for the full cost of eligible assets costing less than $20,000 that are first used or installed ready for use between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024.  

Note that this threshold will apply on a per-assets basis, so small businesses can instantly write off multiple assets.  

Assets that cost $20,000 or more can continue to be depreciated at 15% in the first year of purchase, being the 2024 financial year, and then 30% in each income year after that.
