How Will Your Equipment Purchases Assist In Minimising The Tax You Pay This Year?

It has never been more important for you to have your finance in place for your current and future CAPEX requirements.  Demand for good quality, new or used equipment is extremely high and the supply is extremely low ensuring the competition amongst businesses to secure these goods is robust!

The government has implemented a number of measures to help businesses recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).  Most of these measures relate to claiming tax concessions, deductions, and depreciation of assets at tax time.

Loss carry back

Loss carry back provides a refundable tax offset that eligible corporate entities (companies, corporate limited partnerships and public trading trusts) can claim in their 2020–21 and 2021–22 company tax returns.

Loss carry back is intended to interact with temporary full expensing. This encourages new investment which may result in tax losses. The choice to carry back tax losses may result in a tax refund and an increase in business cash flow.

Temporary full expensing

Eligible businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $5 billion can deduct the business portion of the cost of eligible new depreciating assets that are first held and first used or installed ready for use for a taxable purpose, between 7.30pm (AEDT) on 6 October 2020 until 30 June 2022.

For small and medium sized businesses (aggregated turnover of less than $50 million), temporary full expensing also applies to the business portion of eligible second-hand depreciating assets.

Businesses can also apply temporary full expensing to the business portion of the cost of improvements made to eligible depreciating assets.
