Loyal customers, we want to inform you of the impending ending to a significant and highly beneficial tax-write off incentive from the ATO.
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has a temporary policy in place called “Temporary Full Expensing,” which allows eligible businesses to claim an immediate 100% tax deduction for the business portion of the cost of an asset in the year it is first used or installed ready for use for a taxable purpose.
In simple terms, the ATO are currently handing out 100% tax breaks on the purchase of business equipment.
However, this policy is set to end on June 30, 2023.
Temporary Full Expensing: An Overview
The ATO’s temporary full expensing policy is designed to support businesses and encourage investment by providing tax incentives. Under this policy, eligible businesses can claim an immediate deduction for the business portion of the cost of an asset in the year it is first used or installed ready for use for a taxable purpose. The following points provide an overview of the eligibility criteria and the types of assets covered:
- Businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $5 billion.
- Corporate tax entities that meet the alternative income test.
- New assets first held, first used, or installed ready for use for a taxable purpose between 7.30 pm AEDT on October 6, 2020, and June 30, 2023.
- Second-hand assets meeting specific criteria.
- Improvements incurred between October 6, 2020, and June 30, 2023, to eligible assets.
- Existing assets held before October 6, 2020, which would be eligible assets if not for their holding date.
- Eligible assets of small business entities using the simplified depreciation rules and the balance of their small business pool.
Immediate Tax Benefits:
