How to apply the right tax treatment & avoid ATO scrutiny

Deductions under ATO scrutiny
FBT & how to get the tax treatment right
Latest ATO guidance on when travel expenses are deductible

The ATO has increased its focus on deductions claimed by individual taxpayers in recent years and this is set to continue.  This means that claims for car and other motor vehicle expenses are likely to come under scrutiny, especially when the amounts involved are significant.

On top of this, the ATO has indicated that it is looking closely at the FBT treatment of cars and other motor vehicles provided to employees as there are a number of issues that the ATO is concerned about.

The Tax & Motor Vehicles Webinar shows you how to apply the right tax treatment to the different motor vehicle scenarios. The ATO has also released updated guidance on when travel expenses can be claimed as a deduction, which can impact on the FBT treatment too. It is important for employees, business owners and employers to ensure that claims can be justified.
