As part of the 2022-23 federal budget, the Australian Government announced that it will support small business through the Small Business Technology Investment Boost and the Small Business Skills and Training Boost.
So if you’re a small business, with an aggregated annual turnover of less than $50 million, then it’s never been a better time to go digital.
The Technology Investment Boost allows small businesses to claim a bonus 20 percent deduction for the cost of business expenses and depreciating assets that support digital adoption. This includes portable payment devices, cyber security systems or subscriptions to cloud based services.
We’re not going to lie, this kind of government support has us in sweatbands singing in our best Oliva Newton-John voices… ‘Let’s get digital, digital. I wanna get digital. Let’s get into digital’.
Now we have got that out of our system, let’s talk about what this could mean for your business systems.
Cloud based services
If the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that anything can happen!
With an ever changing and evolving business landscape, many Australian businesses are now turning to cloud computing to drive new growth in their business. Not only does it better enable working remotely, it also ensures the continuity of business activity in any extreme situation.
Xenex can support your business to transition to a smarter and more sustainable way of working. By investing in cloud based services including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Sharepoint, you’ll also be ensuring a stable operating environment that supports your employees to work and access shared documents wherever they are.
Personalised audits and cybersecurity
At Xenex our IT consultants will help you plan better security for your network with a personalised audit to the required compliance framework. Receive the benefits of better security with the additional support of the government’s latest tax deductions for cybersecurity.
Through the use of the compliance frameworks, we can help your business align cybersecurity activities with its requirements, risk tolerances, and resources. This includes measuring data security, security awareness, access control, asset management, communications security, data backups, disaster recovery and much more.
