Act now

Buy new hardware by December 31 & enjoy this little-known business tax relief
Executive summary:
Hidden government benefit: There’s a little known tax relief called Section 179. Where you can write off the entire spend on new IT hardware in this tax year (rather than depreciate over a few years)
The clause: To qualify you must make the purchase and put it into service by the end of the day on December 31.
The urgency: Hardware supplies can be unreliable at this time of year. The earlier you order, the less risk of missing out on your benefit.

Have you heard of Section 179?

It’s part of the IRS tax code that’s aimed at helping small businesses, just like yours.

When you buy new equipment or some software you can deduct the full purchase price from your gross income this year, rather than depreciate it over a few years.

It was designed to encourage you to invest in your business. And it’s a generous relief… you can write off up to $1,160,000 in this tax year.

There’s a comprehensive guide with illustrations, and information you can run by your CPA here.

If you want new computers, technology, or software, you need to act TODAY

Hardware supplies can be unreliable at this time of year. The earlier you order, the less risk of missing out on your benefit.

You really should invest now in anything you think you’ll need in 2024.

This is serious! It needs urgent action if you want new technology in time to benefit from the tax relief.

ThreatLocker is a zero-trust endpoint security tool giving companies control over what software can run, by whom, and what data can be accessed.

It keeps a full detailed audit of what applications are used and data accessed/transferred/deleted and by what users (signature tracking, etc.) If something unusual happens, such as a signature change, or a user opens an application that is out of their normal routine the administrator is alerted. This is a crucial tool in identifying malware threats, as well as helping organizations identify if users are accessing applications and/or data/ files they should not be.

ThreatLocker provides a solution that allows businesses to control the content that runs on their network. Unlike AntiVirus software ThreatLocker is not looking for known viruses or malware. ThreatLocker uses a complex set of rules to determine what can be executed on a network and stops anything that has not been approved before it can even execute.

This will replace Webroot in your current environment.
