2023 Federal Budget - $20,000 Small Business Instant Asset Write-Off

As part of the 2023-2024 Budget it was announced that small businesses (turnover of less than $10 million) will be able to immediately deduct the full cost of eligible assets costing less than $20,000 installed ready for use between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024. Note this measure is not yet law.

Assets over $20,000 can continue to be added to the small business simplified depreciation pool and claimed at 15% in the first year and 30% in each subsequent year.

This confirms that the temporary full expensing will end on 30th June 2023 as legislated. Small business entities should keep this date in mind especially if they are looking to invest in assets over $20,000.
