Instant Tax Write Off Increase – Hoist & Workshop Equipment

One of the Federal Government Coronavirus Economic Stimulus initiatives which may be advantageous for your business is the instant tax write off increase.

If you’ve been thinking of upgrading your hoists or kitting out your workshop with new equipment, now could be the time with immediate tax deductions on offer for items purchased between March and June 2020.

We know things may be tough in Australia – and indeed the world right now – but if you’d like a no obligation chat with one of our experienced team – give us a call on 1300 694 363. We can help you assess what equipment would be right for your needs to help keep the wheels of your business moving now – and in the future.

At Genesis Equipment we supply and install only the highest quality workshop equipment with exclusive distributions rights for eight of the world’s leading manufacturers for added peace of mind and durability. We can also put you in touch with a local finance broker, too – see more below.

What has changed with the instant asset write-off?

The instant asset write-off threshold has temporarily jumped from $30,000 to a whopping $150,000.

It’s also accessible to eligible businesses with an aggregated annual turnover of less than $500 million (up from $50 million).

These changes apply to new or second-hand assets which are first used or installed and ready to use between March 12, 2020 and June 30, 2020.

According to the ATO, eligibility is dependent upon a range of factors. For more detailed information, head to the website here.

Need finance?

Genesis Equipment has a partnership with Blink Finance, who will assist customers with flexible and dynamic commercial financing solutions for machinery and equipment.

“The instant asset write-off allows businesses to buy large items of capital equipment for their business and to obtain an immediate tax deduction for doing so (rather than depreciating the cost over a number of years, as was previously the case),”

Managing Director of Blink Finance, David Hooper

For those who apply, a finance broker will be in touch to help with every step of the process.

Blink Finance then takes the time to learn about your business, its goals, cash flow needs and how you hope your new purchase will assist your business.
