INSTANT ASSET WRITE OFF

Instant asset write-off thresholds

Using the simplified depreciation rules, assets costing less than the relevant instant asset write-off threshold are written off in the year they are first used or installed ready-for-use. This threshold applies to each asset irrespective of whether the asset is purchased new or second-hand.

 

The threshold has changed over the last few years and during the current year as shown in the table below.
