Claiming work-related expenses?

If you are claiming work-related expense deductions, you need to satisfy the following:

  • must have spent the money and were not reimbursed
  • it must be related to your job
  • must have a record to prove it

It’s important to remember that if you receive an allowance from your employer, it does not automatically entitle you to a deduction. You still need to show that you have spent the money and it was related to your job.

The ATO will be paying extra attention to people whose deduction claims are higher than expected, in particular:

  • car expenses claims including those for transporting bulky tools
  • travel
  • internet and mobile phone
  • self-education
