Boost for training but let’s include subbies

One sweet spot in the Federal Budget was the support for small businesses to upskill their employees through the Skills and Training Boost.

Assuming this measure passes post-election, small businesses (with aggregated annual turnover less than $50 million) will have access to a 20% bonus tax deduction for the cost of external training courses delivered to their employees by providers registered in Australia.

That means that for every $100 you spend on training, you can receive a $120 tax deduction.

There is no limit on how much spending on training courses can be deducted by a small business at the bonus rate of 120%, but the course must be run by an external education provider registered in Australia.

In-house and on-the-job training is not eligible, nor is money spent training people who are not employees of the business.
