if you are wondering if your shiny new mac that if ordered now will only be delivered in early 2010 and apple’s “we only print invoices upon shipping policy” is still eligible for the business tax break, here is some good news:
the lady from the ATO’s hotline we just talked with:
you are eligible if you can provide proof that you have committed to the purchase (e.g. the apple store order acknowledgment) before the applicable deadline(s).
please note we are obviously not the ATO nor in any other way qualified to give any guarantees on this specific matter, so when in doubt either check online here or directly call the ATO on 1300 337 921.
