  • Loss Carry-Back And Temporary Full Expensing Measures To Extend Up To 2023!!

The government has decided to extend both loss carry-back measures and temporary full expensing measures for another 12 months as it is likely to spur companies that continue to build the investment wave.

These intuitive measures were introduced in the October budget in the last financial year, but now both measures will extend for another 12 months, that is, up to 30 June 2023, at the expense of $20.7 billion for the next four years.

The finance and taxation department expects both intuitive measures to generate over 60,000 jobs while boosting the country’s GDP by $18 billion by the end of the financial year of 2022-23. You should know that all businesses hiring more than 11 million employees can write off the entire amount of the asset they bought.

In the past seven years, there was a significant rise in spending on equipment and machinery. So, the treasury has announced to bring back the era, meaning trades can purchase a new ute, a manufacturer can increase their production line, and a farmer can buy a new harvester.

The application of the current temporary full expensing scheme remains unchanged, which means companies with less than $5 billion turnovers can deduct the cost incurred in purchasing the eligible depreciable assets acquired after 06 October 2020, 7.30 pm and installed or first used by 30 June 2023.

Small businesses should know that no amendments will be created to rectify any discrepancy arising from adverse outcomes, and tax experts may believe in bringing it to pool balances. But they won’t be able to write off the entire asset expense.

CPA Australia, Chartered accountants New Zealand and Australia, law council of Australia, the institute of public accountants, the tax institute and Tax & super Australia had informed the finance and taxation department at the early stages of this financial year, highlighting the oversight and debating about the policies intentions were to enable business entities to consider full expensing, and there was no statement suggesting these measures are only for business excluding small ones through pool balances.

The temporary loss carry-back, on the other hand, enables businesses with less than $5 billion turnovers to carry their tax loss until the 2022-23 year and avail it against the tax amount paid in the last financial year or as far back as 2018-19 financial year.

However, only two-thirds of the entire small business community are able to benefit from loss carry-back policy owing to requirements of corporate entities, despite the appeal of the national accountants and tax associations and Chartered accountants of New Zealand and Australia to widen the scope of eligibility criteria in order to add non-corporate business entities like partnerships, sole traders, and trusts.

The government is taking the genuine appeal into consideration, but it is still unclear what they have decided for the future of non-corporate business entities. Meanwhile, other businesses can benefit from these measures and reduce their taxable income while maximizing their refund if they are entitled to it.
