Finance Tip of the Month

Reminder: Home Office deductions are changing.

Taxpayers must now keep a record of all the hours worked from home during the whole income year.

As long as the information is recorded as it happens, records of work hours can take any shape, including timesheets, rosters, logs of the time spent logging into employer or business systems, and annual diaries.

You also need to keep receipts for expenses.Any expense taxpayers have incurred that is covered by the fixed rate per hour must be documented. For example, if taxpayers use their phone and electricity when working from home, they must keep one bill for each of these expenses.
