Since the announcement on Budget night - May 12, 2015 there has been significant interest within the solar and energy efficiency industries regarding how to apply the $20,000 immediate asset write off.
What you need to know
Businesses must have aggregate annual turnover less than $2 million
Applies for assets acquired and installed from budget night 12 May 2015 to 30 June 2017 (assuming legislation passes)
Both new and second hand assets are permissible
Applies on a per asset basis, so several assets each costing up to $20,000 would qualify
For Solar PV, LED and other assets that are eligible for environmental credit rebates (e.g. STCs, VEECs and ESCs), the value of the goods that can be applied to the $20,000 threshold is the gross price of the system. That is, the full value of the goods and not the ‘discounted’ value.
Assets can’t be leased or rented – as such Energy Lease’s Chattels are permissible. Contact us today.
The measure is currently an announcement only. There is no legislation yet. Legislation will need to be introduced and passed through Parliament but will apply retrospectively should it pass.
