$20,000 instant asset write-off

The write-off threshold of $20,000 has been extended to 30 June 2018.

If you buy an asset and it costs less than $20,000, you can immediately deduct the business portion in your tax return. The $20,000 threshold applied from 12 May 2015 and will reduce to $1,000 from 1 July 2018.

You are eligible to use simplified depreciation rules and claim the immediate deduction for the business portion of each asset (new or second hand) costing less than $20,000 if:

  • you have a turnover less than $10 million (increased from $2 million on 1 July 2016), and
  • the asset was first used or installed ready for use in the income year you are claiming it in.

 

Assets that cost $20,000 or more can't be immediately deducted. They will continue to be deducted over time using the general small business pool. You write-off the balance of this pool if the balance (before applying any other depreciation deduction) is less than $20,000 at the end of an income year.

Remember, registered tax agents and BAS agents can help you with tax advice.
