Instant Asset Write-Off Extended

Good news!Calendar Dates - Instant Asset Write Off Extended This month the government announced that the Instant Asset Write-off has been extended for six months, taking the initiative to 31 December 2020. Australian businesses with less than $500 million annual turnover will be able to take advantage of the write-off and invest in assets to support their business. This government initiative is designed to help the economy reopen and boost economic growth.

The instant asset write-off can be used for:

– Multiple assets, as long as the cost of each individual asset is less than the relevant threshold
– New and second-hand assets.

Changes this year

From 12 March 2020 now through to 31 December 2020 the instant asset write-off details are below.

  • threshold amount for each asset is $150,000 (up from $30,000)
  • eligibility has been expanded to cover businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $500 million (up from $50 million).
