If you’re like most of us – using your phone for work has fast become the new norm and is vastly classified as an essential tool for work
So, if you do use your phone for work – here’s what you need to know if you’re claiming deductions:
- Firstly, you must personally pay for the phone or service you’re claiming and ensure the expense is related to earning your income
- Keep your receipt and/or bills to prove this
- Your phone must be used for work-related activities such as phone calls/messages to a client, sending/receiving emails, taking photos, managing social media etc.
It’s good to seek advice from a tax accountant if you’re looking at claiming deductions for phone usage to ensure you’re claiming everything you’re entitled to and have the documents to back you up. Contact us on 4638 5300 if you require any assistance.
