Deductions


Spencer Accountants have prepared a generalised income checklist which may assist you in gathering appropriate documents

Requirements

To claim a deduction for a work-related expense, you must meet the 3 golden rules:


You must have spent the money yourself and weren't reimbursed.


The expenses must directly relate to earning your income.


You must have a record to prove it (usually a receipt).

Work-Related Deductions

You claim these in your tax return at the 'Work-related expense' sections.

If the expense was for both work and private purposes, you only claim a deduction for the work-related use. You can't claim a deduction if your employer pays for or reimburses you for any of these costs. If we think your employer may reimburse you for your expenses we may ask them.
