Get 120% Tax Deduction with Logistics Cloud Co. WMS


The Federal Government incentivises Small Business to invest in Digital Technology

The time for investing in your warehouse and fulfilment operations is now! The technology pays for itself, has never been better or more affordable, and the Federal Government will give you much needed boost with a 120% tax deduction on hardware, implementations costs, and software licence fees.

Small businesses (with aggregated annual turnover of less than $50 million) will be able to deduct an additional 20 per cent of the cost incurred on business expenses and depreciating assets that support their digital adoption, such as portable payment devices, cyber security systems or subscriptions to cloud based services.

Businesses may continue to deduct expenditure that is ineligible for the bonus deduction under the existing tax law. We will provide further details on eligible expenses once the law has passed.

An annual $100,000 cap will apply to each qualifying income year. Businesses can continue to deduct expenditure over $100,000 under existing law.

When the technology investment boost applies
This measure will apply to expenditure incurred in the period commencing from 7:30 pm AEDT 29 March 2022 until 30 June 2023.

How to claim the technology investment boost
For eligible expenditure incurred between 7:30 pm AEDT 29 March 2022 until 30 June 2022:

claim the expenditure as usual in your 2021–22 tax return, and

For eligible expenditure incurred from 1 July 2022 until 30 June 2023:
