The small business tax break was introduced earlier this year as part of the Rudd Government’s stimulus measures, and has been applauded by business groups as a way of assisting growing businesses through the downturn and stimulating economic growth by pulling forward investment.

Under the original model, the tax break was set at 30% for assets over $1000 that were purchased between 13 December 2008 and 31 December 2009 and installed by 31 December.

But under the new 50% tax break, the business will be able to claim a tax deduction of $15,000 (that is, 50% of $30,000).
