The temporary full expensing rules which have been in place since 6 October 2020, are coming to an end on 30 June 2023.
Businesses must take action to ensure they do not miss out on accelerated tax deductions for this financial year.
Temporary full expensing (TFE) permits eligible businesses to claim an immediate deduction for the business portion of the cost of depreciating assets incurred between 6 October 2020 and 30 June 2023 when:
Simply purchasing the asset is insufficient for claiming, it must be physically held, used or installed.
There is generally no limit on the cost of assets to which you can apply temporary full expensing. However, limits may apply to certain assets, such as passenger vehicles that may be subject to a car depreciation limit.
You can choose to opt out of temporary full expensing for an income year on an asset by asset basis if you are not using the simplified depreciation rules and claim a deduction using other depreciation rules. You must advise the ATO if you choose to opt out in your tax return. This choice is unchangeable.
