OMNIBUSiness April 2019

The 2019-20 Federal Budget was designed to showcase the return to surplus (and by default the Government’s economic credentials) and engage voters with initiatives to make them feel like they are more prosperous. A massive infrastructure spend added to this sentiment.

As far as changes affecting business taxpayers, there were these:

  • The Government announced that it is increasing and expanding access to the instant asset write-off with effect from 7:30 PM (AEDT) on 2 April 2019 (i.e. ‘Budget night’) until 30 June 2020. The changes in this regard are twofold, as follows:
  1. Increasing the instant asset write-off threshold from $25,000 to $30,000. The threshold applies on a per asset basis, so eligible businesses can instantly write off multiple assets.
  2. Making the instant asset write-off available to medium-sized businesses (the instant asset write-off is currently only available to eligible small businesses).
  • Proposed Division 7A changes deferred
  • Expanding Single Touch Payroll - more about that below including how we can help employers
  • Strengthening the Australian Business Number system
