Common Tax Deductions for Small Business
Are you claiming all the business tax deductions that you are entitled to?
There are many expenses common to most small business, and there are other expenses that are specific to the nature of the goods or services that your business provides.
Expenses must relate to the running of the business and providing the goods or services that your business offers.
Some common expenses that are not deductible are fines and penalties, provisions for employee leave, donations to entities not registered as deductible gift recipients and entertainment.
There may be some expenses you want to check with us such as private usage of business vehicles, prepaid expenses, bad debts, loss of stock and borrowing expenses. We’ll make sure to include all the deductions you’re entitled to.
What’s on the ATO Radar?
