In October last year, the government introduced temporary full expensing of eligible business assets in a bid to help businesses continue to survive the economic fallout of Covid-19 and the restrictions and chaos that ensued and to help boost Australia’s economic recovery. If you are wanting to upscale your business and start the new financial year on the right foot, equipment finance may be the way for your business to take advantage of this scheme.
It is estimated that 1 in 3 Australian small businesses close their doors within the first year, two out of four by the end of the second year, and three out of four by the fifth year. Running a successful small business takes hard work, perseverance, the ability to pivot when necessary, a good business plan and clear goals.
As many small business owners are struggling at the moment, we want to share with you our tips to help you achieve your goals and keep your business dreams alive.
Originally due to revert back to $1,000 on July 1st 2020, the Federal Government has announced an extension of the instant asset write-off threshold increase, through to the end of the year, 31 December 2020. Great news for small business!
We once again find ourselves approaching the end of the current financial year (and what a year it has been!). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ATO have increased the instant asset write-off threshold from $30,000 to $150,000. They have also expanded access to include businesses with a turnover of less than $500 million, up from $50 million.
