Revised instant tax write off

A revamped version of the instant asset write-off scheme for small businesses kicks in this income year taking over from Temporary Full Expensing which has been in place for the past few years.

If you have a small business with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million, you will be able to immediately deduct the full cost of eligible assets costing less than $20,000 that are first used or installed and ready for use between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024.

The $20,000 threshold will apply on a per-asset basis, so you will be able to instantly write off multiple assets.

The $20,000 threshold was described as a temporary increase in the Federal Budget so it is likely to be reduced in future years. It was originally expected to be $1,000.

This measure is not law yet.
