As we get closer to the end of financial year you may be looking to invest in your technology. Depending on how you wish to take advantage of this, whether by preparing for the financial next year of your business, this may come in various ways.
In late March 2022, the Australian Government announced the “Small Business Technology Investment Boost, in their budget that small and medium businesses can benefit by investing in digital technology. The benefit was to provide a $120 tax deduction for every $100 spent on their business expenses up to $100,000. Some examples include cyber security or cloud-based services subscription as well as training provided to employees. However, these measures have not been passed to date and are subject to approval by the new Government.
