Businesses regularly incur expenses in exploring new and more dynamic way of doing things — successfully and not so successfully. But what’s deductible?
This course will cover the rules introduced in The Taxation (Annual Rates for 2020–21, Feasibility Expenditure, and Remedial Matters) Act 2021 that codifies when businesses can deduct expenditure relating
to completing, creating or acquiring property (business assets) that is later abandoned.
Upon satisfactory completion of this activity you will be able to:
- Identify when expenditure qualifies as feasibility expenditure
- Understand the deductibility rules for such expenditure
- Understand the exceptions to the deductibility rules
