Instant Asset Tax Write-Off

Small businesses, with aggregated turnover of less than $10 million, will be able to immediately deduct the full cost of eligible assets costing less than $20,000 that are first used or installed ready for use between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024.

The $20,000 threshold will apply on a per asset basis, so small businesses can instantly write off multiple assets.


Some examples of tools where the instant tax write off may apply are:

  • Power Tool Kits
  • Construction equipment
  • Ladders and Scaffolding
  • Concrete mixers and equipment
  • Building tools such as nailers and bradders
  • Air Compressors
  • Auto tools such as Hoists
  • Outdoor Power Equipment such as mowers


Assets valued at $20,000 or more (which cannot be immediately deducted) can continue to be placed into the small business simplified depreciation pool and depreciated at 15% in the first income year and 30% each income year after that.
