How the 2020 Federal Budget affects your business (Part 1)
The 2020 Federal Budget contained a number of measures to try and kickstart the Australian economy which has gone into its first recession for nearly 30 years. Those measures include:
tax cuts for any employees you have.
the JobMaker Plan to boost employment.
an enhancement to the instant asset write-off scheme.
an enhancement to write-off provisions for business losses.
tax concessions for small to medium-sized businesses.
We’ll look at the tax cuts in this article, and each of the other measures in forthcoming articles.
