ATO focusing on personal electronic devices

This financial year, the ATO has announced that it will be focussing on specific types of deductible claims. In previous years, the tax office has announced specific industries or professions that will be subject to particular scrutiny.

The biggest announcement this year is that deductions for personal electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops will be closely examined. Last year, Australians claimed almost $19.5 billion in deductible expenses, and personal electronic devices represent the fastest growing sector in this area.

In order to make sure that you are claiming the right tax deductions for a personal electronic device, you should make sure that you have a clear understanding of what qualifies as personal and professional use.

Travel expenses are another area that will be a focus for the ATO this year, especially claims for transporting large or bulky tools.
