• The government will extend the 2020- 21 Budget measure titled JobMaker Plan — temporary loss carry-back to support cash flow.

The extension will allow eligible companies to carry back (utilise) tax losses from the 2022-23 income year to offset previously taxed profits as far back as the 2018-19 income year when they lodge their 2022-23 tax return.

Loss carry-back encourages businesses to invest, utilising the 2021-22 Budget measures, known as Temporary full expensing extension by providing eligible companies earlier access to the tax value of losses generated by full expensing deductions.
