Work-related travel that you pay for to industry shows, conferences etc. can also be claimed including accommodation and sometimes meals.
Work-related clothing is deductible if you need to purchase a company uniform or do your own laundry. Unfortunately, the black trousers from Cue aren’t unless your company is Cue but don’t forget if you purchased an apron or other protective gear to keep that wax off your clothes that is claimable.
Courses and education – even if you are not an apprentice you are still entitled to claim any self-education expenses you incur for your job.
Tools of trade is a big one so don’t miss out! If you buy even a pair of tweezers for your job this is deductible.
Union or association fees are tax-deductible.
Donations – if like many you have helped people all year round this it will help you as donations to a DGR are tax deductible. It definitely pays to help others!
Accounting fees – So why do it yourself when your accounting fees are tax-deductible? Don’t forget you can even claim the travel to see us!
Also don’t forget Private Health Insurance and Income Protection (Yes you can get insurance to protect your income!)
