More Support for Small Business

Small businesses on The Northern Beaches are set to receive more support from the Federal Government.

The Federal Government continues to back small business with the announcement that it will extend the $150,000 instant asset write-off for six months to 31 December 2020.

Northern Beaches businesses with annual turnover of less than $500 million will be able to take advantage of this extended timeframe to invest in assets to support their business as the economy reopens and coronavirus health restrictions continue to be eased.

These measures will support over 3.5 million businesses nationally, employing more than 9.7 million employees. They are designed to support Northern Beaches businesses sticking with investment they had planned and encourage business to bring investment forward to support economic growth over the near term.

The instant asset write-off also helps to improve cash flow for businesses by bringing forward tax deductions for eligible expenditure. The threshold applies on a per asset basis, so eligible businesses can immediately write-off multiple assets provided each cost less than $150,000.

Member for Mackellar, Jason Falinski MP said, “this extension is great news for local businesses, giving them additional time to acquire and install assets, as they will now have until the end of the year.”

“Assets can be new or second hand and could include for example a truck for a delivery business or perhaps new appliances for restaurants or cafes.

“I started my business in the early 2000’s and understand the day to day pressure of business owners.”

Hardworking Australian businesses can rest assured that the Morrison Government will do all that is necessary to support them to bounce back stronger and get to the other side of this crisis.

“Local businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and I want to do everything I can to assist them through this difficult time”, Mr Falinski said.
