It’s a great time to be tapping into the advice of agri tax specialists as the Federal Government announces even more changes to tax write off schemes.

In the latest amendment announced yesterday the Federal Government has extended the $150,000 instant asset write off from July 1 until the end of this year.

Under the scheme businesses making up to $500 million a year are allowed to instantly write off newly purchased assets worth up to $150,000.

The scheme was originally meant to close on July 1, but as of yesterday it has been extended to new assets purchased before December 31 this year.

Without the scheme, businesses would have to deduct the depreciation of their assets over several tax returns.

But with the scheme in place, eligible businesses can deduct the full cost of purchases up to $150,000 from the amount of tax they pay in the financial year the asset is purchased.
