The ATO has flagged this as an area it is monitoring again this year. But to make things easier, they have a myDeductions tool on their ATO app which allows you to keep track of these expenses.
Please remember that you can only claim a work-related expense if:
- You have spent the money and were not reimbursed
- It is related to your job
- And you have a record to prove it.
The ATO is focusing on car expenses, travel, internet and mobile phones, and self-education.

Or if you’re still not sure whether you can claim it, please speak with your accountant.
