  • Either cash/accrual accounting method available
  • simplified trading stock rules where businesses only need to conduct stocktakes and account for changes in the value of trading stock in limited circumstances, and
  • simplified depreciation rules where most depreciating assets costing less than $20,000 each are written off immediately. Most other depreciating assets are pooled and deducted at a rate of either 15% for the first year of acquisition or 30% for each year after the first year.

* Please call your Client Manager who can answer any query you may have on this matter.
