Working from Home during COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 your working arrangements may have changed. If you have been working from home, you may have expenses you can claim a deduction for at tax time.

Tracking these expenses can be challenging, so the ATO have introduced a temporary shortcut method. It's a simple way to calculate these expenses with minimal record keeping requirements. The shortcut method initially applied from 1 March 2020 to 30 June 2020, however it can now be applied up until 30 September 2020.

This means, you will be able to use the shortcut method to calculate your working at home expenses for the period from:

1 March 2020 to 30 June 2020 in the 2019–20 income year, and
1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020 in the 2020–21 income year.

More information is available at the ATOs website or by contacting our office.
