In a move to support businesses and stimulate economic growth, the Australian Government has reinstated the Instant Asset Write-Off initiative. This announcement brings welcome news to businesses across the country, offering an extended opportunity to invest in assets and accelerate depreciation deductions.

Instant Asset Write-Off Extension

For the 2023-24 financial year, the government has increased the instant asset write-off limit to $20,000. This change was announced on May 9, 2023, as part of the 2023-24 Budget. The Australian Government aims to improve cash flow for small businesses and make rules easier to follow with this temporary measure, which will last from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024.

This initiative is for small businesses with a yearly turnover under $10 million. They can instantly deduct the cost of assets under $20,000 each, bought and used (or ready to be used) between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.

The great part? This applies to every qualifying asset, allowing small businesses to write off multiple assets as long as each is under the $20,000 limit.

For assets costing $20,000 or more, which don’t qualify for this immediate deduction, there’s still a benefit. These higher-priced assets can go into the small business depreciation pool. In the first year, they’ll depreciate at 15%, and in following years, the rate increases to 30%.
