30% / 50% Small Business Investment Allowance Bill Passes

The eagerly awaited Investment Allowance packages have at last passed through parliament. These 30% and 50% Investment Allowances apply to purchases of new plant and equipment. What’s more, they are in addition to the standard depreciation claimed for such assets.

For entities with a turnover of less than $2 million per annum:

  • Investment allowance NOW is 50%
  • Goods must be $1,000 or more
  • Goods need to be ordered by the 31 Dec 2009 (6 month extension for order)
  • Goods need to be delivered by the 31 Dec 2010 (6 month extension for delivery)

For entities with a turnover greater than $2 million per annum:

  • Investment allowance remains at 30%
  • Goods must be $10,000 or more
  • Goods need to be ordered by the 30th June, 2009 (under 5 weeks remaining)
  • Goods need to be delivered by the 30th June, 2010

For example, if your turnover is less than $2 million dollars and you order (say) a $10,000 machine, the government allow you an immediate deduction of 50% ($5000) and then you depreciate the FULL VALUE of the machine ($10,000). In effect, you are able to claim a total of $15000 for your $10000 asset!
