Tax Incentives for Aussie Businesses

Small Australian businesses deserve a break. And we’re happy to say the Government is giving small businesses a break this tax time.

Here’s how you will benefit from the governments instant write-off incentive when buying a shed for your small business or farm. 

Small Businesses – Instant Asset Write-off

As of 2nd April 2019, the Instant Asset Write-Off Incentive was increased to $30,000 for each asset. 

What this does this mean? If you are operating a small business (with an annual turnover of less than $10mil), you can deduct the business proportion of the Shed or Garage, providing it cost $30k or less for each asset / shed (for sheds bought and installed after 2nd April). Please check out this site, for buildings bought prior to this date.

Larger businesses with a turnover of $10mil - $50mil may also be eligible for assets acquired that cost $30k or less.

Australian Farmers – Fencing and Fodder Storage

Additionally, we are pleased to announce that the government is also helping our Aussie farmers with a Fodder Storage write-off. Farmers can claim a deduction for the full cost of the fodder storage structure. Terms and conditions apply as follows:

  • Acquired the Fodder Storage Shed on or after 19th August 2018.
  • Building must be mainly used for the storage of fodder
  • Primary production business in Australia – you can claim regardless of whether you own the land or are a lessee.
