What exactly is the $20,000 asset tax break?

Are you wondering what all this talk of the $20,000 tax break for small businesses is all about?

It is an immediate tax deduction not a rebate for assets purchased by small businesses after the 2015 budget (12 May 2015) to reduce your tax. If your business turns over less than $2m per annum you can write off assets purchased up to $20,000. Purchases may include plant, equipment, furniture or vehicles – both new &/or used.

So in short:

  • Assets must cost less than $19,999 (excluding GST).
  • A small business is one with an aggregated turnover of less than $2,000,000.
  • Can be new OR used asset.
  • Purchases must after 7.30pm on 12 May 2015 until 30 June 2017.
