The 2022-23 Budget delivered last night by Treasurer Josh Frydenberg is a win for Australian small businesses like residential builders and subcontractors.
The Morrison Government is delivering $1.6 billion in tax relief to support small businesses to go digital and upskill their employees.
It’s never been a better time to invest in cloud-based construction estimating software, like Dindo, to help simplify your estimating, quote on more jobs and win more work.
We have summarised some of the Budget measures below:
The Government’s Technology Investment Boost reduces the cost of going digital, supporting businesses to invest more in their digital capability. This measure will provide tax relief of $1 billion.
More than 3.6 million small businesses with an annual turnover of less than $50 million will be able to claim a bonus 20 per cent deduction for the cost of expenses and depreciating assets, up to $100,000 of expenditure per year.
“Every hundred dollars these small businesses spend on digital technologies — like cloud computing, e-invoicing, cyber security and web design — will see them get a $120 tax deduction,” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said in his Budget speech.
Eligible expenditure includes subscriptions to cloud-based services, like Dindo Estimating.

The boost will apply to expenditure incurred from 7:30pm (AEDT) on 29 March 2022 (Budget night) until 30 June 2023.
The Government’s Skills and Training Boost encourages small businesses to train new staff and upskill existing staff, helping them to be innovative and grow. This measure will provide tax relief of $550 million.
Small businesses will be able to claim a bonus 20 per cent deduction for the cost of external training courses delivered to employees in Australia or online, by providers registered in Australia.
This boost will apply to eligible expenditure incurred from Budget night until 30 June 2024.
The Morrison Government is continuing to support small businesses by making it easier to do business. This includes:
The GDP uplift rate that applies to PAYG income tax and GST instalments will be reduced to 2 per cent for the 2022-23 income year.
This will mean lower tax instalments, delivering $1.85 billion in cash flow support for 2.3 million small to medium businesses, sole traders and others who use the instalment amount method.
The Government continues to back small businesses to grow and create jobs as part of our plan for a stronger future.
