Home Office Tax Time
Now that the end of financial year is approaching, doing your taxes doesn't have to be a stressful time! If your dreading your tax returns being a small figure, don't worry because you may be able to claim more tax deductions than you think.
Tax deductions for work related expenses
When you’re working, especially from home, you’re going to be spending money on things that you normally wouldn’t be spending your money on. These include things like a work computer, a comfortable office chair, and other tech devices that you may use while working. Work-related expenses are eligible for tax deductions, reducing the amount of tax you have to pay.
The general rules to claim work-related tax deductions are:
- The items were used solely for work. If there is also personal usage, then you may only claim a portion of the item for tax deduction.
- To claim WFH expenses, this must mean that the employee cannot work at the office and working from home is the only option
- You must have records of the transactions to prove it e.g. receipts
