Unlocking Opportunities: $20,000 Instant Asset Write-Off Extension

The government has extended the $20,000 instant asset write-off for small businesses until 30 June 2025, enabling immediate deductions for eligible assets. While pending legislative approval, this extension offers opportunities for strategic asset acquisitions, but prudent caution is advised.


Easing Financial Pressures: Energy Rebate for Small Businesses

With the expansion of the Energy Bill Relief Fund, about 1 million small businesses will receive a $325 electricity bill rebate from 1 July 2024, aiming to alleviate cash flow pressures and mitigate rising expenses.


ABN Integrity Assurance: Changes to ABN System

Enhanced administrative processes have led to the government's decision to halt previously proposed changes to the ABN system, providing relief from additional compliance burdens for ABN holders.


Empowering Financial Flexibility: Debts On Hold

New amendments grant the Commissioner of Taxation the authority to refrain from offsetting tax debts placed on hold before 1 January 2017, benefitting small businesses, individuals, and not-for-profits. Detailed guidelines on this discretion are forthcoming.


Supporting Holistic Well-Being: Small Business Helpline

The allocation of $10.8 million to extend the Small Business Debt Helpline and the NewAccess for Small Business Owners program signals the government's commitment to supporting small business owners' financial and mental well-being.
