Two-month window for asset write-off

WITH MANY farmers looking to take advantage of the increased instant asset write-off threshold, O’Connors has implemented some key strategies to ensure maximum availability for every farm, regardless of requirement.

The farm machinery dealer offers close to 20 brands and O’Connors group sales development manager Tom Sheridan was confident they were doing all they could to support customers, in terms of availability and range.

“We have teamed up with our franchises to ensure we’ll have increased machinery available to deliver in the pre-June 30 window,” he said.

“This has meant acquiring more stock and working closely with suppliers to secure more build slots and extra orders.

“We know our customers will be looking to invest and we want to be able to support their ability to maximise this opportunity, by having the right stock in our yards.”

As Australia’s largest Case IH dealer, the company has a broad geographic footprint and caters to a range of specific farming needs.

“We’ve gone far and wide here, with products in this tax range to suit the various farming types across our dealership network including crop production, hay production, dairy and livestock,” Mr Sheridan said.

“We’re very mindful this incentive could be used to offload stock so instead we’ve worked hard to consider each customer’s individual needs.”

O’Connors’ product availability in the specific tax-range encompasses Case IH’s mid-horsepower range and below, including the Maxxum and Farmall ranges, plus Macdon, Milstack, Samaz and Elho.

“Our customers run highly professional business operations and we know that every purchase decision is a carefully considered one,” Mr Sheridan said.

“So we’re expecting the many solutions we’ll supply are purchase decisions that were originally planned for next financial year.”
