There have been changes to the instant asset write-off.
The instant asset write-off threshold has increased to $30,000 for each asset from 2 April 2019 and the instant asset write-off has been extended to 30 June 2020. The turnover test has also increased from $10m to $50m.
If you are a small to medium business (with a turnover of less than $50 million), you can immediately deduct the business portion of most assets that each cost less than $30,000 (under the instant asset write-off threshold) if they are first used or installed ready for use from 2 April 2019 to 30 June 2020.
However, if you are a small business (with a turnover of less than $10m), and the asset was first used or installed ready for use from 29 January 2019 until 2 April 2019, you can still immediately deduct the business portion of most assets costing less than $25,000 each. Before 29 January 2019 the relevant threshold is $20,000.
|Date Asset Purchased||Business Turnover||Maximum Value of Asset for Instant Write Off|
