MYOB AE Assets release notes and install guide—2.4.7 (Australia)

Release notes
  • Temporary Full Expensing (TFE) is available for new assets and the Small Business Pool. TFE will be applied for the SBE pool, as mandatory, when the upcoming year-end is between 7:30pm AEDT 6 October 2020 and 30 June 2022.
  • For the 2019–20 and 2020–21 income years, eligible businesses can deduct 57.5% (rather than 15%) of the business portion of a new depreciating asset in the year it's added to the pool.
  • The instant asset write-off of $150,000 has been extended by another 6 months from 31st Dec 2020 to 30th June 2021.
  • We've fixed a problem where the instant asset write-off threshold was applied:
    • in the General Small Business Pool report when the balance was over $150,000
    • in the LVP Schedule report when the balance was under $20,000.
  • We've made changes to reflect the ATO changes to instant asset write-off thresholds.
    Calculating pool balance and write-off threshold
    If the pool balance for the year (calculated prior to depreciation) falls below the pool write off threshold, the entire small business pool is written off:

See instant asset write-off thresholds on the ATO website for more information.

For the 2020 and 2021 financial years, if there are new assets in the Small Business Pool, you'll see an Apply Accelerated Rate checkbox when you create or edit the asset.

To apply accelerated depreciation, select Small Business Pool. For accelerated depreciation to be applied, the assets must not be eligible for Temporary Full Expensing or Instant write-off.
