As you know 1st July marks the beginning of the financial year. And in May the Australian Government released the 2015 budget which included some great tax reductions for small businesses.

While most small business owners are running around snapping up purchases before EOFY, not many know that this arrangement is agreed until the end of June 2017.

Budget.gov.au states:
“All small businesses will get an immediate tax deduction for any individual assets they buy costing less than $20,000. This $20,000 limit applies to each individual item. Small businesses can apply this $20,000 rule to as many individual items as they wish. These arrangements start from Budget night and continue until the end of June 2017.”

So now is as great a time as any to have a look at your current website or if you don’t have one, to build one.
