The end of the financial year is nearly upon us, and for many tradies, that means it’s time to upgrade the toolkit. 

Investing in new tools and equipment is a fundamental part of any tradie’s job, with many purchases claimable as part of their upcoming annual tax return.

Construction workers can claim the costs of work-related tools and equipment necessary to perform their role as part of their yearly tax deductions.

Thanks to the instant asset write-off, small businesses with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million will be able to immediately deduct the total cost of eligible tool purchases costing less than $20,000 that are first used or installed ready for use between 1 July 2024 and 30 June 2025.

This handy tax hack allows tradies to take advantage of the EOFY sales by adding to their toolbelt without demolishing their wallets by offsetting the cost of big-ticket items.

The month of June is renowned for industry retailers putting on great deals and exclusive releases, with everything from safety gear, smart-tech, vehicles and office supplies getting an EOFY price trim. 

But arguably, one of the most sought-after discounts is for tools, with many tradies holding out just to take advantage of the significant savings on offer.

Build-it’s top EOFY tool deals:


Bunnings have wasted no time sawing through the price of their big brand 10-piece power tool kits.

The 18-volt AEG, DeWalt, Bosch, and Makita gear bundles are available from just $1999 each, with kits including toolkit musts such as combi drills, impact drivers, angle grinders, circular saw, reciprocating saw, battery packs, chargers, tool bags and blowers. 

A number of great tool kit deals are available on the Bunnings Trade website.

Some kits even include a redemption offer to add more to the packs, while Bunnings power pass pricing is available on all four. 

For those looking to spend a little less, there are smaller tool combo five-packs and a great sale on batteries and gardening tools. 

Sydney Tools

Sydney Tools has a great range of construction equipment on sale from all your top tradie brands at heavily discounted prices.

Their range of deals includes everything you need for your next job or DIY project, including combo kits, tool packs, laser level collections and more.

Like with most great sales, the hard part won’t be deciding what to buy, but choosing what to leave behind – although if you run out of trolly space, just use the bonus wheelie tool bag that comes with spends of over $300 on popular power tools brands such as DeWalt and Milwaukee. 

Some great value toolkits are available with Sydney Tools where tradies can score a bonus wheelie tool bag.

For those in the welding industry, Sydney Tools has special discounts on all your job-specific equipment, including more than $100 off Lincoln Electric’s 4in1 multiprocess and STICK welders.

Carpenters can take advantage of huge discounts on standalone, circular, and sliding saws, as well as compact table saws and demolition saws. 

DIY experts can also upgrade their garden maintenance equipment with huge discounts on lawnmowers, blowers, trimmers and multi-function powerheads. 

The Makita brushless multi-function power head kit is incredibly light and has a trimmer and saw attachment, which is perfect for pruning the backyard.
