$20,000 Tax Break for Small Business


As a small business, you may be eligible for the following income tax concessions.

From 1 July 2016, the turnover threshold for these concessions is:

  • $5 million for the Small business income tax offset

  • $10 million for all other income tax concessions.

The turnover threshold up to 30 June 2016 was $2 million for all these concessions.


If you are a small business (with a turnover of less than $10 million), you can immediately deduct the business portion of most assets that each cost less than $30,000 (the instant asset write-off threshold) if they are first used or installed ready for use from 7.30pm (AEDT) 2 April 2019 to 30 June 2020. So long as these purchases are not stock.This means that welders, welding equipment, plasma cutters etc under $20,000 per item will be a claimable purchase.
