Claiming website development costs

If you pay for a website for your business, here are some things to remember about claiming the costs. If you spend the money:

  • before your business starts – then you claim the cost over five years once you start up
  • after your business starts, and you pay:
    • more than $1,000 you must claim the cost over four years
    • less than $1,000 you can claim that cost as an outright deduction.

You can also claim an outright deduction for some ongoing expenses associated with running and maintaining your website, such as domain name registration fees and server hosting costs.
