Practical Tax Examples - Work-related expenses claims


An example-driven look at how the tax rules apply to work-related expense claims

Drawing on material from the newly published second edition of Australian Practical Tax Examples, this webinar, will examine key tax concepts surrounding claims for work-related expenses (WRE) by working through examples taken from the book, explaining how tax law and administrative practice applies to real life situations, and how that can translate into a tax outcome for your clients.

With Tax Time 2020 just around the corner and a continuing focus by the ATO on WRE claims, examples are deliberately framed to reflect real life client situations and issues that you might encounter on a daily basis, as well as some of the more complex and unusual outcomes that can apply.

During the webinar, you will be guided through practical worked examples illustrating the following tax topics: 

  • Deductions for car expenses
  • Self-education and home office expenses
  • Work-related travel
  • Home-to-work travel
  • Work-related meal expenses and the substantiation exception

Webinar Learning Outcomes:

Participants will gain an understanding of how tax law applies to work-related expenses claims, both in theory and when applied to common client situations, as explored through our practical worked examples. The knowledge gained can then be taken back to the office to be applied to your present and future clients. Examples reflect and clarify recent ATO guidance, specifically around work-related travel claims.

Suited to:

The webinar provides an introductory and intermediate level of knowledge ideal for the development of staff within tax agent and accounting practices who act for individuals with work-related expense claims.
