Due to the current economic and financial situation brought on by Covid-19, the Federal Government has extended the Instant Asset Write-Off to the value of $150,000 until 31st December 2020 for businesses.

The instant asset write-off can be used for :

  • Multiple assets as long as the cost of each individual asset is less than the relevant threshold
  • New and second-hand assets.

The write-off cannot be used for assets that are excluded from the simplified depreciation rules. The instant asset write-off eligibility criteria and threshold have also changed over time. You may need to check your business’s eligibility and apply the correct threshold amount. This depends on when the asset was purchased, first used or installed and ready-for-use.
