The Federal Budget 22/23 – Understanding Temporary Full Expensing & The Instant Asset Write Off
What is Temporary Full Expensing?
The instant Asset Write-Off incentive was originally introduced in 2020 as an economic response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Temporary Full Expensing of Capital Assets measure allows businesses with an aggregated turnover of up to $5 billion, which includes 99% of Aussie businesses, to write off the full expense of eligible brand new assets instantly without any threshold or limit. Even small and medium-sized business with an aggregated turnover of less than $50 million can write off the expense of eligible used assets instantly.
What sort of equipment can you acquire under the Temporary Full Expensing scheme?
Please note, the asset must be first used (or installed ready for use) by a strict deadline, which is June 30th, 2023. Additionally, to claim the full deduction the asset must be used solely for business purposes. If you want to reduce your tax bill, you can get genuine savings on equipment using this incentive. Have a look at the examples below.
What is the deadline for the Temporary Full Expensing measure?
The deadline for Temporary Full Expensing is approaching, so now is an excellent time for businesses to assess their capital needs and determine whether it is advantageous to make asset acquisitions this financial year. After the temporary full expensing measure expires on June 30th, 2023, businesses will depreciate all capital assets in accordance with the Uniform Capital Allowances rules, subject to the asset’s effective life.
