Take Advantage of Tax Incentives (Instant Asset Write-Off)

June 30 marks the end of the tax year, it’s also the time that rule changes tend to come into effect. Many Australian businesses are able to take advantage of the the instant asset write-off rules to reduce their tax bill. An instant asset write off allows eligible businesses to claim the full amount of the asset in depreciation in the one financial year (the year you purchased and installed the asset), rather than spreading it over a number of years. This can be a huge financial boost for your business!

Instant asset write offs are available to most Australian businesses including sole traders and companies, it also applies to most types of assets and until July 2023 there are few limits on asset value. But get in quick, from July 1st 2023 the threshold for individual assets that can be immediately depreciated reduces back down to $20,000.

You could claim an instant depreciation benefit for:

  • Computers and technology
  • Office furniture
  • Motor vehicles (cars, trucks, tractors)
  • Tools and industrial equipment

Of course the challenge many business face is having the funds to make capital purchases before the end of the financial year. That’s where CFI Finance can help. With a Business Loan from CFI you can acquire and depreciate your assets straight away and spread the cost of the asset over a number of years. Now that’s a win-win!

You can get more information at the ATO’s website here, and talk to a registered tax agent or your accountant to find out if you’re eligible and how an instant asset write off could benefit you.

 

Shop for BIG discounts

Almost every business wants to close out their financial year with a bang. This makes June a bumper month for sales and a great time for buyers. Wholesale and retail businesses may be looking to minimise their inventory before June 30, or to hit quotas / sales targets before the year ends.

In these times of inflation many suppliers may also be looking to increase prices in the new financial year, so it can pay big dividends to get in before they do. Combine discounts with tax benefits and your business can really save big. CFI Finance has a range of Asset Finance products that can help you make the most of EOFY sales.
