Investment incentives

COVID-19 measures

We have previously told you about 2 temporary measures to encourage business investment:

  • full expensing for the cost of new depreciating assets acquired from 7:30pm (AEDT) on 6 October 2020 (i.e. 2020–21 Budget night) and first used or installed by 30 June 2022; and
  • an accelerated rate of depreciation for new depreciating assets first held on or after 12 March 2020 and first used or installed ready for use on or after 12 March 2020 and before 1 July 2021.

The law has been changed so that you can now choose not to apply full expensing or accelerated depreciation to particular depreciating assets. But once you make that choice, you are locked in (i.e. you cannot reverse it).


Tip!  Talk to your tax adviser if you are contemplating buying new assets for your business.
