Home Office and Other Deductions

Individual taxpayers that work from home may be entitled to claim a deduction for home office expenses. This can include a computer, phone or other electronic devices you are required to use for work purposes, and home office running costs.

Home office running costs can be calculated using either of the following two methods;

1. Estimated number of hours worked from home during the year at a rate of $0.45 per hour

Individual taxpayers that work from home may be entitled to claim a deduction for home office expenses.

2. Actual expenses of Gas & Power based on the dedicated portion of the house used for work related activities

Other expenses incurred that may be deductible by an individual tax-payer include;

- Private Motor Vehicle Travel (the number of kilometres travelled for work-purposes, aside from travel from your home to the primary work-place)

- Parking

- Tolls
