$150K Instant Asset Write Off

Under the instant asset write-off, eligible businesses can claim an immediate deduction for the business portion of the cost of an asset in the year the asset is first used, or installed ready for use.

Instant asset write-off can be used for:

multiple assets as long as the cost of each individual asset is less than the relevant threshold
new and second-hand assets.
It cannot be used for assets that are excluded from the simplified depreciation rules.

The instant asset write-off eligibility criteria and threshold have changed over time. You need to check your business's eligibility and apply the correct threshold amount. This depends on when the asset was purchased, first used or installed ready for use.
