The Instant Asset Write-Off Stimulus Package and How It Can Benefit Your Business with Telematics

Australia continues to evolve as the COVID-19 outbreak slowly begins to subside, with businesses beginning to open their doors again and normalcy returning to our everyday lives, now is the time to consider the government Stimulus Package and set your business up for recovery and success.

The purpose of the $189 billion economic plan is to assist Australian businesses and stimulate economic growth in the short-term, whilst encouraging a stronger economic recovery as we strive to pull through these difficult times and get our businesses back on track.

Making an investment in GPS technology is now even easier, the Stimulus Package encourages businesses to purchase critical assets needed to efficiently run their operation.

If your annual company turnover is less than $500 million, the instant asset write-off has increased from $30,000 to $150,000 (excluding GST)

  • New or used assets (including private sale)
  • $150,000 limit per asset, multiple assets can be claimed
  • No limit to number of assets acquired under this arrangement
  • Assets can be purchased outright or financed on Chattel Mortgage or CHP
  • Valid until 30 June 2020

In 2017-18 there were more than 360,000 businesses that benefited from the current IAWO, claiming deductions to the value of over $4 billion. If you are considering upgrading or adding to your existing fleet, take advantage of these initiatives now, before 30 June 2020.
