Matt Schembri, finance manager with the Printing Industries Association of Australia (PIAA), has met with Michael McCormack, deputy prime minister and minister for Infrastructure and Transport, to confirm that tax write-offs will benefit small printers.
The industry body says it gave the deputy PM a wish list of purchases that printers could benefit from the $20,000 instant asset write off, including small cars, second hand delivery van, small forklift, computers, small printers, office equipment, tools of the trade and an office face lift.

The PIAA which has been lobbying the government to maintain the write off, says the benefit will be warmly received by its members.
Schembri says, “McCormack has come from regional Australia and was a printer himself, so has a firsthand experience with small printers and understands the priorities of our industry.
“The write off will continue to have a positive impact for the industry and provide much needed relief and support for SMEs who are the lifeblood of our economy.”
