COVID-19: Gvt Asset Write-Off Increased to $150k

How the latest Government announcement will impact your business during COVID-19. COVID-19: Gvt Asset Write-Off Increased to $150k

Now is the best time to stock up on fuel (while it’s cheap!) and you can make the most of the new Government incentive to do so.

The Australian Government has recently increased the instant asset write-off threshold from $30k to $150k for small to medium businesses. This has also been extended to businesses with aggregated annual turnover of less than $500 million, instead of the previous limit of $50 million.

This was announced by Scott Morrison and applies from March 12th, 2020, as a scheme to provide cash flow benefits for businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You might be eligible for this initiative?

If you are an eligible small to medium sized business, you can claim any business investment on tax up until the end of June 2020. It means that you can immediately deduct purchases of “assets” for your business up until the end of the financial year.

For example, if you have been thinking about getting a fuel storage tank for your property, you can now claim an immediate deduction on this if you match the Government’s business criteria.

Make the most of it now – don’t delay

With people stocking up on food and resources worldwide in preparation for the health and economic hit of COVID-19, there are ways to save money in the long term. For example stocking up on fuel now, whilst prices are seeing a drop, can ensure you are prepared for the coming weeks. You can avoid the unpredictable future of prices escalating, and access a storage solution immediately by purchasing a tank through the asset write-off.

  • Take advantage of the increased Government asset write-off
  • Save $$$ on fuel in the long term
  • Get your fuel storage tanks sorted before the rush

Why buy a self bunded fuel storage tank

Why buy a self-bunded fuel storage tank

Self-bunded fuel storage tanks – Are you looking at fuel storage options for your farm, home or business

You’re looking at fuel storage options for your farm, home or business, but it’s difficult to make a decision. There are a number of factors to consider – capacity, location, environmental requirements, maintenance issues, purpose, capacity etc.

Self-bunded tanks, which are double-walled or skinned, are an increasingly popular option for a number of reasons.

Top 5 benefits of a self bunded tank:

  1. Cost savings: When you buy a self-bunded tank, the savings start with the set-up. Because they incorporate a built-in containment system for ruptures and leaks, self-bunded tanks eliminate the need for specialist civil engineering or building works involved with building an external bund. Typically, buying a self-bunded tank works out at about half the cost of using a single walled tank and building a bund.
  2. Flexibility: A self-bunded tank is a drop-and-go option, so not only can you use your fuel storage immediately, you can safely and easily transport your tank to another site. Smaller portable self-bunded tanks are available in sizes up to 10,000 litres, meaning when your worksite moves with seasonal changes or project demands, your fuel storage can move with it. Our fully transportable containerised tanks store up to110,000 litres of fuel, for operators with high fuel turnover and storage requirements. Again, there are cost and efficiency benefits because refuelling can take place on or near your worksite, wherever the site is.
  3. Compliance: Buying a self-bunded tank that is certified to Australian Standards is the best way to ensure your fuel storage complies with environmental legislation in your area. A properly maintained bunded tank and refuelling system – including valves, pipes, pumps and hoses – is also the best protection you have against fuel leaks that can cause soil or water contamination and six-figure fines.
  4. Keeping your fuel in great shape: Because self-bunded tanks are easy to maintain and to access for maintenance, it’s easy to keep your tank in great shape – and keeping your tank healthy means your fuel with stay fresh for longer. That in turn means your vehicles will run more efficiently, and your business will benefit.
  5. Security – our range of self-bunded tanks comes in sizes from 1000-110,000 litres and offer unbeatable quality and the added advantage of a safe fuel limit which is 10 per cent greater than standard tanks of similar capacity – meaning your tank can go longer between refills.

Underground Storage Tanks … managing the risks

Most Service Stations across Australia rely on underground fuel tanks to store fuels for the retail market. Utilising underground storage tanks presents many advantages such as site appearance, fire safety, protection from the elements and vandalism … and of course space considerations. Being underground means tanks are not taking up valuable space on your forecourt or site.
