The Takeaway Truck campaign returns
It has been a trying time for everyone, and Australian businesses in just about every industry have been hit hard.
However, the federal government has stepped in to support businesses’ operations and the national economy, with initiatives such as tax-free cashflow boost for employers, apprentice wage subsidy, boosted instant asset write-off and accelerated depreciation measures, among others.
Importantly for road transport businesses and those relying on trucks and other capital equipment, the instant asset write-off threshold has been increased, rising from $30,000 to $150,000 for businesses with an aggregated annual turnover of less than $500 million.
Coupled with the cashflow boost for small- to medium-sized businesses, this gives employers the chance to not only remain operational, but also bolster assets in preparation for the eventual recovery.
In this tough economic context, the timely Isuzu Trucks Takeaway Truck campaign is back again in 2020, offering savings across the ever-reliable Ready-to-Work (RTW) range, which runs from 1 April to 30 June 2020.
Headlining the Takeaway Truck campaign is the NLR 45-150 AMT Traypack, which is now priced extremely well at $45,990* driveaway.
