This year’s federal budget in many ways lived up to its hype. It was mostly a dull and boring affair – but there were some surprises.

Small business owners have plenty to smile about. The 1.5% tax rate cut has been confirmed, but it’s also been extended to unincorporated small businesses to the tune of 5%. They’ll also get an immediate deduction for all individual assets they have costing less than $20,000. Employee Share Scheme rules have been simplified, as have car expense claim deductions. But pension thresholds have been extended and part pension taper rates tightened.

As always, please feel free to talk to our office for further details and information.
