Do you have a 2015 diary?

As tax time is approaching, it is a good time to remind our clients about their obligations to substantiate work-related deductions. One of the ways to substantiate the work-related use of things like home office maintenance, internet use, computer use and mobile phone use, is to keep a diary of the work-related use of these items over a 4 week period. These diaries need to be kept every financial year in order to be able to determine the work-related % and claim the deduction. 

Please also note, if you are claiming car expenses using the logbook method, you must keep a logbook of all your business kilometers over a period of 3 months. The work-related % derived from the logbook can then be applied to your actual car expenses including depreciation of your car for up to 5 years. 

If you would like a template for an ATO-complying diary or car logbook, please email Dorin Bentley (dorin @ sjb-accounting . com.au *please remove spaces) and request the relevant template.
