In my last post, I touched on getting your records together for your accoutant at tax time. One organisation, BAN TACS Accountants, have a number of resources and booklets on their website that you might find useful.

In particular:

  • Travel Records Schedule – www.bantacs.com.au/docs/t1.pdf
  • Receipt diary – www.bantacs.com.au/docs/t4.pdf.  This is particularly useful for smaller expenses (under $10) or if a receipt is not issued (for example, for purchases from a vending machine, automatic toll booth, or washing machines in caravan parks).

You can also download the booklet “Claim Your Trip Around Australia as a Tax Deduction” that is produced by BAN TACS Accountants in conjunction with No Boundaries – just click here for the download.
