Ready-to-Work Takeaway Truck campaign
Australian businesses have welcomed the federal government’s recent suite of stimulus support, including initiatives such as the tax-free cashflow boost for employers, apprentice wage subsidies, boosted instant asset write-off and accelerated depreciation measures, amongst others.
For road transport businesses, or those relying on trucks and other capital equipment, these measures give employers the chance to not only remain operational, but also bolster assets in preparation for recovery.
With all of this in mind, there has never been a better time to invest in an Isuzu.
Headlining the campaign is the NLR 45-150 AMT Traypack, which is now priced extremely well at $45,990* driveaway.
