How 2012-13 tax deductions can help you stay up to date with IT upgrades
If you are running a small business, then your accountant may have already advised you that the small business instant asset write-off threshold has increased from $1,000 to $6,500.
What does this mean for you?
Small businesses can claim a higher initial deduction for depreciating assets acquired in 2012-13, and subsequent financial years.
This is great news for your business, as you can benefit from using the best technological solutions, while claiming the expense as a tax deduction in this financial year.
