Solar is a great investment for a business of any size
With families, business and the economy taking a big hit from the recent bushfire crisis and coronavirus (COVID-19), the Australian Government has announced an increased Instant Asset Write-Off (IAWO) threshold. Smart businesses are taking notice, and it now represents a chance to look into the future.
Previously, businesses with an annual turnover of less than $500 million could instantly write off assets costing up to $30,000. Now, this figure has been increased to $150,000. In simple terms, a business could purchase an asset costing $150,000, and the full cost would be an instant tax deduction. This scheme works on a per-asset basis, too, so businesses can write off multiple assets costing under $150,000 each.
It’s worth noting this scheme was previously only available for businesses with an annual turnover of $50 million. By increasing this level to $500 million, it’s estimated around 5300 more businesses will be eligible.
This change applies to newly purchased or installed products from 12 March 2020 through to 30 June 2021.
Why solar makes sense
If your business is planning ways to take advantage of this stimulus package, solar energy installation is a no-brainer. With energy costs continually rising for businesses, now is the perfect time to make the switch.
You could set your business up with solar energy, and the cost can now be written off as an instant tax deduction. Not only is this a great tax break, but you can power your business with solar, saving you thousands of dollars every year in energy costs.
