– ED HU­SIC will be al­lowed to write off ev­ery as­set they buy cost­ing less than $20,000 for the next two years.

“It means more money to in­vest and grow your busi­ness,” Fed­eral Trea­surer Joe Hockey said.

Mr Hu­sic said the tax cuts came as too lit­tle, too late for some small busi­ness own­ers.

“When the for­mer La­bor Gov­ern­ment had mea­sures in place to help small busi­ness in­vest and im­prove their cash flow – the Ab­bott Gov­ern­ment cut them,” he said.

“Now they’re bring­ing those mea­sures back, at a higher rate, to make up for the money th­ese busi­nesses lost.”
