Could you soon instantly write off $20K?

Are you a small business or sole trader?

The Australian government’s proposed $20,000 instant asset write-off for small businesses has been extended until 30 June 2025, potentially providing a fantastic opportunity for business owners to invest in their home office or business premises setup.

So, what’s the story?

In the 2024-25 Budget announcement on May 14, 2024, the Australian government proposed an extension of the $20,000 instant asset write-off for small businesses. This measure was previously announced in the 2023-24 Budget (also still before parliament). and aims to assist small businesses by allowing them to immediately deduct the full cost of all eligible assets costing less than $20,000.

It is important to note that these measures are not yet legislated and are currently under consideration by the Parliament as part of the Treasury Laws Amendment (Support for Small Business and Charities and Other Measures) Bill 2023.

The latest information from the ATO can be found here.

But you might want to watch this space!

Under this proposed extension, small businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million will be able to instantly write off multiple assets that are first used or installed ready for use between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2025. Assets valued at $20,000 or more, which cannot be immediately deducted, can be placed into the small business simplified depreciation pool and depreciated at 15% in the first income year and 30% each year after that. 

Put simply, small businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million would be able to immediately deduct the full cost of every eligible asset costing less than $20,000. One of the key areas where small businesses might be able to benefit from this instant asset write-off, should it be legislated, is in setting up or upgrading their home office or business premises solutions.

While the proposed instant asset write-off is fantastic news, it is still under consideration. It’s essential for small business owners to stay informed about this potential opportunity, as well as current rules, and get some expert advice. There are already multiple deduction methods to claim business expenses, and existing depreciation rules that apply to any eligible business purchases.  So, regardless of whether this proposed measure is legislated (or if it is and the purchase does not meet the requirements for instant asset write off), you should discuss this with your accountant.
