Six Office Essentials to Claim this Financial Year

Are you a small to medium sized enterprise (SME) with a turnover of up to $50 million? If so, there’s one simple way to help manage your 2019 tax liability that you should consider in the lead up to 30 June, according to Jason de Boer, Tax Partner with advisory firm BDO Australia.

The Federal Government’s instant asset write-off allows SMEs with a turnover of up to $50 million to claim an immediate tax deduction on capital asset purchases. “In the last Federal Budget, the Government increased the instant asset write-off to cover depreciable assets up to a cost of $30,000. I’d encourage the SME community to take the benefit of the write-off into account when evaluating their capital expenditure requirements. Make any required purchases and ensure they are delivered prior to 30 June 2019 to lower your tax liability for the current tax year,” explains Jason.

So what’s included under the instant asset write-off? According to Jason, examples of assets that may qualify for the deduction include:

This provides SMEs with an ideal opportunity to replace those capital assets around the office that may be at end of life or in need of an upgrade. For great tax time deals on everything from printers, office furniture and keyboards, visit or check out our latest Tax Time Catalogue out now.
