A fresh financial year has just begun here in Australia, making now an opportune time to stay on top of your finances so that you can maximise your return this tax year.
What should you be keeping track of as a work-from-home employee? We’ll quickly go over some of the basics and then dive into some other little-known items that you can claim for 2018/2019.
This is one most startup and small business owners have got covered. Through the instant asset write-off scheme, you can deduct the expense for capital items used for business purposes that cost up to $20,000 per item.
There are the basics, like desks, chairs, cabinets, and computers. But did you know that you may also be able to claim plants, paintings, televisions, your home internet, and security equipment?
Here are a few other little known claimable items that can put more money in your pocket this year:
Marketing expenses can be astronomical, so it’s nice to know that a lot of what you spend can be claimed this tax year. Nearly all forms of advertising – television, radio, billboard, press, and even social media – can be claimed. If you attend community events and engagements, like open days, fetes, and fairs, you may also be able to claim those expenses.
There are a number of deductions related to insurance you can take advantage of, like:
Depending on the type of work you perform, you may be able to take advantage of additional deductions like staff training, pool tables, and gaming consoles like a PlayStation or Xbox One.
Finally, make sure you claim for the depreciation of your assets like your laptop and other office equipment. If you’re confused about what you can and can’t claim, just remember that your trip to an accountant is tax deductible!
