Section 179: Get the Software You Need

section179-banner-headerHave you heard about the Section 179 Deduction? It allows businesses to expense or deduct purchases for eligible machinery, equipment, and software in the year of purchase.

By opting to not use the deduction, companies have to amortize the write-off over the useful life of the purchased asset. However, using the Section 179 Deduction decreases your Federal Income Tax this year, saving your business money!

2016 Deduction Limit = $500,000

You read that correctly: a $500,000 deduction on off-the-shelf software. That’s right, you now have another great reason to invest in ERP software today!

Distribution One’s innovative ERP-ONE software is complete, comprehensive, and connected. By taking advantage of this amazing deduction now, you will streamline your productivity, increase your profitability, and drive your competitive advantage in 2017 and beyond.

As with all good things, this deduction only lasts for a limited time. Your ERP-ONE software must be financed/purchased and put into service by the end of the day, 12/31/2016.

The additional benefits of Section 179 include:

2016 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,000,000 
This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This could be a great option for customers choosing On-Premise ERP-ONE deployment who need to invest in servers. We recommend that you consult your accountant.

Bonus Depreciation = 50%
Bonus Depreciation is generally taken after the Section 179 Spending Cap is reached and is available for new equipment only.

Material goods that generally qualify for the Section 179 Deduction
Please keep in mind that to qualify for the Section 179 Deduction, the equipment listed below must be purchased and put into use between January 1 and December 31 of the tax year you are claiming.


The above is an overall, “simplified” view of the Section 179 Deduction for 2016. For more details on limits and qualifying equipment, as well as Section 179 Qualified Financing, please read this entire website carefully.
