Last night (29 March 2022) the Australian Federal Government announced a technology investment boost, aimed at small businesses (with aggregated annual turnover of less than $50 Million) to support digital adoption.

From now until 30 June 2023 businesses that fit the turnover criteria will be able to deduct an additional 20% of the cost incurred on business expenses and depreciating assets that support their digital adoption. Examples include portable payment devices, cyber security systems or subscriptions to cloud-based services. 

There’s a cap of $100,000 per income year on eligible expenditure. You can spend more than $100,000 but can only claim the additional 20% deduction on eligible expenditure up to $100,000.

Further details are available on the ATO website.

Business owners are advised to seek advice from their accountants on their eligibility for the additional deductions, before making any purchasing decisions.
