Due to COVID-19 situation, most of you may work from home during that period and planning to claim a deduction for each hour you have worked from home. That’s fine! However, please be mindful of your car deduction and laundry expenses. That amount should not be claim full year long. This is because the ATO may question the fact that you don’t have to wear uniform while working from home and you may not have to travel to visit your clients as normal, so why are you claiming working from home, work travel expenses and laundry expenses at the full amount.
Example: If you are claiming 4 months (16 weeks) of working from home then you should be claiming only 8 months (32 weeks) of laundry and car expenses.
