Equipment Finance – EOFY Deductions Await!

As the end of the financial year (EOFY) approaches, Australian business owners are presented with a strategic opportunity to enhance their operations and optimise their tax position through equipment finance. Financing new equipment or vehicles is not only a pathway to modernising and increasing the efficiency of your business but can also provide significant tax advantages under the right circumstances. So, if you’re thinking about upgrading your equipment or work vehicles – this could be the ideal time!

The Strategic Timing for EOFY Purchases

Investing in new equipment or vehicles as the financial year draws to a close can be a savvy business move. Doing so allows businesses to take advantage of the immediate depreciation deductions available for new assets, which can significantly lower taxable income. With 30 June fast approaching, considering how to make the most of these deductions can lead to substantial financial benefits.

The potential tax benefits of financing equipment before EOFY can be significant. For one, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) allows businesses to claim deductions for the business use portion of the depreciation of the asset. Additionally, specific schemes such as the instant asset write-off or temporary full expensing may allow businesses to write off the full cost of the asset immediately, depending on eligibility and the asset’s value. The $20,000 instant asset write-off, while not yet law, offers an opportunity for business owners to reduce their taxable income, while also adding value and operational capacity. More details on that can be found here.

Streamlined Equipment Finance Process

Through the McKinley Plowman Finance team, the process of securing equipment finance can be incredibly efficient. Here’s what we can offer:

  • Quick Approvals and Settlements: Rapid 2-hour approvals and settlements, with an overall turnaround time of just 48 hours from application to settlement.
  • High Financing Limit: Access up to $150,000 in finance for purchasing new business equipment or vehicles.
  • Flexible Asset Options: Finance is available for a wide range of equipment and vehicles –vehicles must be new (or no older than 5 years) and purchased through a licensed dealer.
  • Eligibility Requirements: To be eligible, businesses must have held their ABN for at least 2 years, be GST registered, and the finance must be intended for business use only. Importantly, applicants should have no adverse credit history.
  • Competitive Pricing: Excellent pricing is available, with no financials required for this streamlined process.

Even if you and your business don’t quite satisfy all of the above criteria, we can still assist through the normal application process and unlock the pre-EOFY tax advantages of equipment finance.

Who Can Benefit?

This opportunity is not just for large businesses. Small and medium enterprises stand to gain considerably from timely equipment finance. Whether it’s upgrading to more sophisticated machinery, expanding operational capacity with additional vehicles, or simply replacing outdated equipment, the benefits extend beyond tax deductions to enhancing overall business productivity and competitiveness.
