The IAWO threshold

The threshold applies on a per asset basis, so eligible businesses can immediately write‑off multiple assets. Choose from hundreds of cars on offer to take up the new Government tax benefits. Be quick – offer ends June 30, 2020.

Increasing the instant asset write-off

Under the new Instant Asset Write-Off scheme, your business can now claim an immediate deduction of $150,000. With this new arrangement, you will pay less tax in 2019-20 helping your business cash flow and withstand and recover from the economic impact of the Coronavirus.

Example taken from business.gov.au website:

Owen owns a company, ON Point Farms Pty Ltd, through which he operates a farming business in the Central Wheat Belt of Western Australia. ON Point Farms Pty Ltd has an aggregated annual turnover of $25 million for the 2019‑20 income year. On 1 May 2020, Owen purchases a second hand tractor for $140,000, exclusive of GST, for use in his business.

Under existing tax arrangements, ON Point Farms Pty Ltd is not able to immediately deduct assets costing more than $30,000 and instead would depreciate the tractor using an effective life of 12 years. Choosing to use the diminishing value method, ON Point Farms Pty Ltd would claim a tax deduction of $3,899 for the 2019‑20 income year.

Under the new $150,000 instant asset write‑off, ON Point Farms Pty Ltd would instead claim an immediate deduction of $140,000 for the purchase of the tractor in the 2019‑20 income year, $136,101 more than under existing arrangements. At the company tax rate of 27.5 per cent, Owen will pay $37,427.78 less tax in 2019‑20.

This will improve ON Point Farms Pty Ltd’s cash flow and help his business withstand and recover from the economic impact of the coronavirus.
