The Australian Taxation Office(ATO) has reported that the $20,000 threshold has been recently extended to the date of 30th June 2019.
This means that if you buy an asset and it costs less than $20,000, then you can write off the business portion in your tax return for the year. This applies to both new and second hand assets purchased during a financial year. Recent changes also allow this ruling to apply to businesses with a turnover of less than $10 million which has increased from $2 million previously. The asset must also be first used or installed ready for use in the income year that you are claiming it in.
This $20,000 threshold applies from 12th May 2015 to 30th June 2019, and is set to be reduced to $1,000 from 1st July 2019.
