TIP 1 – Be Aware of your Eligible Tax Deductions:

Your tax deductions play a significant role in deciding your tax refund amounts, but misleading or incorrect deductions can lead to ATO audits and penalties. Always claim tax deductions that have direct nexus to your job occupation. The expenses that you have paid and have substantial proof i.e., receipts. Many expenses that you accumulate are not eligible in your scenario. Discuss with our tax experts beforehand to prepare for your financial year. Remember one simple rule “incurred in the course of performing your job” be it work-related clothing, Personal-Protective-Equipment’s, uniforms, tools, laptops, self-education (related to work), or travelling expense; there are hundreds of deductions from which you are eligible for as per your job occupation.

TIP2 – Organise your documents and paper slips:

They can be anywhere and everywhere! If you like old school, having a different folder every year can be a great idea. Simply clip in or accumulate your receipts and claim it at the end of the financial year. Otherwise, you can xerox your receipts on one single paper double sided to save your folder looking big and unhappy. Another option that you can access for free is CLOUD systems, just click photos of receipts and keep uploading in your cloud account to save them for eternity.  What do you think about maintaining a diary for recording your miscellaneous expenses under $10 or maybe having notes in your mobile phone? All these methods are effective and useful in getting to maximum refunds and compliance with ATO. 

TIP3 – When you were working from home:

Yes, we will all miss working from home during the pandemic, but nothing feels greater than going back to the work force and your favourite coffee place in the morning. But let’s discuss some of the tips regarding work from home deductions. You are eligible to claim the expenses in the proportion of it being used for your work purposes. No matter if you were working full time or part time, claim what is rational and what you are eligible for. Quick reminder record how many hours you work in a week beforehand. Deductions can include electricity, phone and internet charges, any furniture you purchased only for your work use, a portion of your occupancy charges say mortgage, house rent and insurance as you work solely from your home and have designated areas in which you work.  There are various ways to calculate home office or work from home expenses, talk to a tax advisor to claim it correctly.  

TIP4 – Spend wisely: It is always alluring to spend it all once you receive it!

Tax refunds are indeed an instant financial boost. You might have a long list of purchases for the coming year but always think before you spend.
