Claiming Tax Deduction on Artworks

If you work from home as an employee, you may claim a deduction for your artwork up to the value of $300 as part of your home office expenditure. Any value greater than $300 must be claimed using the usual decline in value rules. Discover Bluethumb’s range of artwork for under $300 and add a touch of creativity to your home office.

However, if you are a small to medium-sized business owner (turning over less than $10 million annually), the amount you can claim is much greater. Artwork purchases costing up to $20,000 are eligible for the instant asset write-off. There is no limit to how many pieces of art you can make this claim for.

Is My Business Eligible for the Tax Deduction?

Small to medium-sized businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million qualify for the Instant Asset Write-off scheme. The ATO states that the artwork:

  • Should be a tangible item
  • Purchased principally for a small to medium-sized business premise
  • Capable of being moved
  • Should not be considered trading stock

Unfortunately, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are excluded.

    Hi folks,
    I run the Harbour Arts Guide in Coffs Harbour NSW which promotes the local arts scene in this region. I would love to run as a story the article you have about office art as a tax deduction. Would this be possible? I would fully credit Bluethumb as the author.
    Thanks and I look forward to your response
    Kind regards
    Ben Eckersley
