PIC Scheme Enhancements Beneficial for F&Bs

In Budget 2013, the Government announced several enhancements to the Productivity and Innovation Credit scheme that are excellent news for F&B operators. This is the best time to acquire commercial kitchen equipment!

See how the following changes can help you:


  • Automated kitchen equipment for the purpose of food processing, food preparation or for food and beverage-related operations will qualify for PIC from YA2013. This means a wider range of food equipment can now be claimed for without having to wait 2-months for the lengthy approval.
  • Additional PIC Bonus gives F&B operators a dollar-for-dollar matching cash bonus for YA2013 to YA2015, subject to a minimum investment of $5,000 in PIC-qualifying expenditure and an overall cap of $15,000 for all 3 YAs combined. This is on top of the existing 400% tax deductions and/or 60% cash payout. This means you get more cashback for the automated food equipment you purchase!
