Ute beauty! Instant asset write-off extended

Tradies and small business fleets have been given an extension to cash-in on the Federal Government’s $150,000 instant asset write off scheme, after it was announced overnight the deadline has been moved from the end of June 2020 to the end of December 2020. The six-month extension means business buyers who may not be able to take delivery of a new work vehicle before the original 30 June 2020 deadline can now take advantage of the tax benefit in the 2020/2021 financial year.

2020 Volkswagen Touareg recalled for leak that could damage transmission

Volkswagen Australia has issued a recall of 72 examples of its 2020 Touareg SUV due to a transmission leak that could result in damage. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says an oil pipe fitted to the transmission may have been welded incorrectly, which can result in a leak. If left unattended, the transmission can lose “several litres” of fluid, which could lead to damage of the unit.
