Low Value Asset Write Off Threshold Changes

It’s time to shop!

Now for one of the more exciting tax related announcements of the year! If you are interested in purchasing a low value asset in the near future it is time to go shopping! 

In March 2020 the Government increased the low-value asset write-off threshold from $500 to $5,000. This change was an effort to stimulate spending and lessen cost burdens on businesses during the COVID-19 downturn. 

The low-asset write-off provision allows an asset purchase to be 100% tax deductible, provided it is under the value threshold. 

From 17 March 2021 the threshold will decrease from $5,000 to $1,000, so if you’re interested in purchasing a business asset between the value of $1,000 and $5,000 then THE TIME IS NOW! Buy before 16 March 2021 to maximise the amount of tax that can be deducted from your purchase.
