For business owners, under the small business tax allowance, the Australian Tax Office considers artworks as an investment and depreciating assets when bought by and for businesses. This makes purchasing art for your workplace under the Instant Asset Write-off scheme 100% tax deductible. Following the Budget Stimulus Package announced by the Prime Minister, there’s no limit to the number of artworks costing less than $150,000 to claim a tax deduction at the end of the financial year.
The 22nd Biennale of Sydney is open with free admission at Carriageworks until 26 September, Art Gallery of New South Wales and Artspace until 27 September and Campbelltown Arts Centre until 4 October 2020. The exhibition is now closed at Cockatoo Island, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and Powerhouse Museum.
