Tax & Motor Vehicles Webinar

How to apply the right tax treatment & avoid ATO scrutiny

Deductions under ATO scrutiny
Latest ATO guidance on when travel expenses are deductible

A Live Instructor Led Webinar

The ATO has increased its focus on deductions claimed by individual taxpayers, often resulting in additional scrutiny when deductions are claimed for cars and other motor vehicle expenses. Significant claims tend to put clients firmly in the ATO’s spotlight. The ATO has also been successful in cases before the courts and AAT.

The Tax & Motor Vehicles Webinar works through how to identify and apply the correct tax treatment to a range of scenarios involving motor vehicles. We look at what needs to be done to ensure that deductions can be claimed and who should claim them. We look at this area from the perspective of employees, business owners and employers to ensure that deductions can be justified.
