A Tax Break for Buying Software in 2017?

November 15, 2017

Does your business like to save money?

What would you do with a tax deduction of up to $500,000?

Have 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!

Act fast! Under the Section 179 Deduction, companies can claim their software investments until December 31, 2017. By now, you’ve researched the substantial benefits of ERP-ONE+ distribution software with Dashboard+ Data Analytics and supplemental Amazon integration. You understand how maximized productivity and expanded sales reach will benefit your company’s profitability and competitive advantage. There’s not a better opportunity to ensure your long term success.

Act before December 31st to take full advantage of the tax deduction benefit on your ERP-ONE+ investment! Have questions? This article from BizTech Magazine describes how the deduction works.
