Unprecedented numbers of us have had to work from home this year and for many, navigating what to claim as allowable tax deductions is perplexing. Moreover, any resultant tax refund is especially important for those who have had their hours reduced, pay rate slashed or lost their jobs altogether and need this money now more than ever.
Every dollar counts right now so don't be afraid to fight for what you're entitled to when it comes to your deductions, says tax expert Dr Adrian Raftery.
When Hayley Stephens and Robert Fagan began planning the launch of their e-commerce business in January, a global pandemic was not on their radar. Ms Stephens and her brother-in-law Mr Fagan joined forces to create Beechville Lane – an online baby and new mum gift hamper business featuring iconic Australian brands.
There have been fresh calls for the GST to be raised, but some experts are saying now's a good time to review other unpopular taxes like stamp duty.
Australians can expect a bigger tax return this financial year due to a combination of lower taxable incomes and higher claims for work-related expenses, tax experts have said.
