Working from home in times of Corona Virus COVID-19

Working from home? Here’s what you can claim for tax.

Hopefully you are in a fortunate position and are able to work from home in the current landscape. Don’t forget that you will be able to claim a deduction for expenses that relate to work. These include home office running expenses, telephone and internet expenses.

The ATO has lots of information on this – including a handy download, a home office calculator and a video explainer.

Start keeping all your receipts for the expenses incurred and you can claim them at tax time.

If you are working from home as an employee, download this useful summary of things you can claim: Working From Home Summary

Or visit the ATO website for more information: Home Office Expenses

Simple Solutions Accounting Services are also currently working from home but we are still available during business hours to serve you.
