Heads up, the Temporary Full Expensing Scheme deadline is looming!

Business owners wanting to buy a vehicle, asset or an important piece of equipment and immediately write off the full cost have limited time to act.

That’s because the Temporary Full Expensing Scheme is set to expire on 30 June, 2023.

It will be superseded by a much less generous scheme, known as the Instant Asset Write-Off, which in the recent budget has been increased from $1000 to $20,000.

Although the increase can be seen as a positive, when compared to the Temporary Full Expensing Scheme, it is quite insignificant.

So, if your business could do with expensive new equipment, you might want to act quick!

Let’s recap the Temporary Full Expensing Scheme

The Temporary Full Expensing Scheme is originally a stimulus measure to address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; allowing businesses to have eligible depreciating assets immediately written off, in full, with no cost limit.

Yep, that’s right … no cost limit on eligible assets.

Applied for with your tax return, the scheme can reduce the amount of tax you have to pay for the financial year – which means you can reinvest the funds back into your business sooner.

Let’s explore the new Instant Asset Write-Off threshold

The new (or updated) Instant Asset Write-Off Scheme offers eligible businesses with an annual turnover of less than $10 million, a $20,000 threshold.

Similar to previous schemes, eligible small businesses will be able to claim a tax deduction for the full value of a purchase after its use (up to $20,000), rather than claim depreciation amounts over several years.

Operating on a per-asset basis, this version of the Instant Asset Write-Off scheme will be in place from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024.
