Substantiation for mobile, home phone and internet costs

Posted by Team AVS on 28 Jul, 2017  0 Comments

The ATO has issued guidance on making claims for mobile phone use as well as home phone and internet expenses, and says that if you use any of these for work purposes you should be able to claim a deduction if there are records to support claims.

A large tax refund may feel like free money, but it isn’t. During 2015-16, ATO has refunded close to $28b to individuals. Many tax refund recipients are putting that money to work. Some taxpayers getting a refund expect to save or invest the money, while others may use the money to pay down the debt.
