So what if you want to buy an asset costing more than $30,000 (ex GST)?
Well as a small business, you will be able to claim 15% depreciation on the cost of the asset. So a $50,000 asset bought today will still generate a $7,500 tax deduction in the 2019 tax year (and $12,750 next year).
Buy the same asset on say 7th July, and your claim for next year is only $7,500.
And you still may be able to write-off the balance in the 2020 year for an asset costing more than $30,000. The $30,000 limit also applies to the undepreciated pool balance. We had one client buy a vehicle for $35,000. Come July 1 2019, the pool balance will be $27,500 (as that is the only asset they are depreciating). They can write off the balance of the car in the 2019/20 year.
