Everyone in business, did you know...
Working from home due to Covid19? You can claim some home office expenses. Normally the rate is 52 cents per hour for each hour worked at home. From the 1st of March 2020 to 30 June 2020 the rate has changed to 80 cents per hour. This higher rate includes additional costs you may incur such as telephone or internet in which you can claim a tax deduction for at the lower rate per hour based on business use. Additional costs to set up home office may be able to be claimed for such as purchase of new computer, computer supplies and office furniture.
Pre Payments | Did you know you can prepay 12 months of things such as rent, interest on some loans and in some cases equipment finance and get a deduction in the current financial year? What about prepaying subscriptions, union fees or replacing that old Apple Mac?
Superannuation + Insurance | Have you considered maximising your superannuation payment? Are there insurance premiums for income protection you can prepay?
Donations | If you have a favourite charity, now could be a good time to pass on the goodwill and make a donation (this is Jim's favourite).
Review debtors | as any bad debts can be claimed as a tax deduction.
Stock valuations | can take into account obsolete or decreased stock which can decrease your taxable income.
