Take Advantage of Water Facility Tax Deductions!

Take advantage of the water facility tax deductions when you buy a Pioneer Water Tank!

As a primary producer or an irrigation water provider you may be entitled to claim a deduction for capital expenditure incurred on a water facility.

A water facility includes the following items:

·      water tanks

·      pumps (including those used for fire-fighting)

·      tank stands

·      dams, bores & wells

·      irrigation channels or pipes

·      water towers and windmills

·      extensions or improvements to any of these items.

Welcome to Pioneer Water Tanks

Here’s what you need to know:

·      The expenditure must be incurred on or after 1 July 2004.

·      Your expenditure must have been incurred primarily and principally for the purpose of conserving or conveying water for use in primary production businesses.

·      The deduction must be reduced to reflect any time when the facility was not wholly used for a taxable purpose. For example, you can’t claim a deduction for a swimming pool even though the water is available for emergency use, such as for fire-fighting or irrigation.

Deduction Amount

If you incurred capital expenditure on a water facility from 12 May 2015 – you can deduct the whole amount in the income year in which you incurred the expenditure.

If you incurred capital expenditure on a water facility before 12 May 2015 – you can deduct one-third of the amount in the income year in which you incurred the expenditure. You deduct one-third in each of the following two years.

Costs incurred by a partnership are allocated to each partner, who can then claim the relevant deduction in respect of their share of the expenditure.

Small Business Owner

As a small business owner you may be eligible to immediately deduct your Pioneer Water Tank purchase. This applies if your purchase is less than $20,000 and made before 12 May 2015.

Pioneer can provide primary producers and small businesses with up to 250,000 litres of secure & reliable water storage capacity for under $20,000. Include a pressure pump or fire pump in your project to take full advantage of immediate deductions.
