Claiming work-related expenses

In an August 2014 announcement, the ATO has advised that it is using extensive data analysis to identify areas requiring attention across all “work-related expense claims”, regardless of occupation.

They are paying particular attention to work-related expense claims relating to:

  • overnight travel
  • transporting bulky tools and equipment
  • the work-related use of computers, phones or other electronic devices.

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

  • you must have spent the money
  • the expense must be related to your job
  • you must have a record to prove it.
