Section 179 – A Tax Deduction for Distribution Software

May 25, 2021

Throughout 2021, it’s important think about the benefits of the Section 179 Deduction for software purchases.

What is the Section 179 Deduction?
Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased/financed and installed during that tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment or software, you can deduct the purchase price from your gross income. It’s an incentive created to reward businesses that invest in themselves.

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 for 2021, saving your company money at year’s end!

How much money?
It depends on what you claim, but the deduction limit stands at $1,050,000 for software investments made in the calendar year.

So, if you’re ready to improve your business with comprehensive Cloud or On-Premise ERP-ONE+ distribution software with tools like wireless warehousing, mobile applications for remote engagement, and a supplemental integrated E-Commerce webstore, now is the time!

The Distribution One implementation calendar is already being scheduled for next year. Remember: to qualify, software purchases and installation must be completed by December 31, 2021.
