Tax Tip #1 Claiming Expenses
Did you know that you need receipts for all work related expenses when they total above $300?
Tax Tip #2 Faded/Lost Receipts
Receipts fading? Missing out on claiming deductions because you have lost your receipts? Take a photo of your receipt straight away, email it to yourself in an online email account, then save in a ‘TAX’ folder. (Some companies will even email you a digital receipt for your records) At the end of the financial year, add up your expenses, in categories, and bring the totals along to your appointment. Remember, you need to keep your receipts for 5 years, from the date of the notice of assessment!

Do you use your motor vehicle for work? (Home to work travel not included unless transporting heavy and/or bulky tools with no safe storage at work) You should keep a log book of the work travel for 12 consecutive weeks to claim the business use part of the car running costs on your next tax return. Remember, you need to keep your receipts for 5 years from the date of the notice of assessment!
