Small businesses offered $1b bonus tax breaks to go digital

Share :

Small businesses in Australia will get a chance to have a brand new website and digital upgrade thanks to the Technology Investment Boost initiative in place.

To support small businesses to invest more in their digital capability, the Australian government is delivering $1 billion in tax breaks for digital spending under the initiative, including upgrades to cybersecurity systems or online sales platforms.

Announced on 29 March 2022, the changes will have the government allowing eligible businesses to deduct $120 for every $100 digital spending, which could include costs on websites, cloud computing or portable payment devices.

There are more than 3.6 million small businesses with a turnover of less than $50 million that are eligible to claim a bonus deduction of 20 percent for expenses and depreciating assets, up to $100,000 per year. They can claim the tax break on purchases made between now and 30 June 2023.

The bonus deduction would cut the cost of going digital and backing businesses that were “embracing the digital revolution”, according to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg.

Mr Frydenberg said: “From [29 March 2022], every hundred dollars these small businesses spend on digital technologies like cloud computing, eInvoicing, cybersecurity and web design will see them get a $120 tax deduction.”

The bonus deduction can be claimed on a range of spending, from improvements to cybersecurity systems, digital tracking for livestock, subscriptions to enhance data analytics and marketing and a digital inventory tracking system.
