If you run a small or medium sized business, the recent 2019-20 Federal Budget is sure going to put a smile on your dial.

Why? The instant asset write-off scheme has been extended until 30 June 2020 and the cap increased from $25,000 to $30,000.

Up until now, only small businesses with an annual turnover of up to $10 million were eligible to claim under the scheme, but the Federal Government has sweetened the deal, announcing businesses with an annual turnover of less than $50 million can now also benefit.

So what does this mean for your business? You can purchase assets up to $30,000 and immediately claim the deduction, provided you meet eligibility and it is ‘first used or installed ready to be used’ before the 30 June 2020 cut-off.

It is expected the boost in business activity and investment will save SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) $700 million over the next few years, and deliver $300 million in extra revenue.
