$20,000 instant asset write-off extended
Here’s the good news on claiming the cost of your business assets.

What does it mean for your business?
Your business must have a turnover of less than $10 million to take advantage of $20,000 instant asset write-off.
Using simplified depreciation rules, you can:
- instantly claim the business portion of most depreciating assets that cost less than $20,000 in your tax return for the relevant income year
