Nobody enjoys completing a tax return but somebody’s gotta do it so you might as well maximise it and claim everything that’s available to you. Here’s Sky Accountants’ tax tips for tradies.

First, claim tools and equipment. You must be using various tools every day and if you have paid for these and use them as part of your business or job, you can deduct them against your tax. If you run a business, you can claim an immediate deduction for the cost of all your tools from 2021 and 2022 under the temporary full expensing measures. If you are employed, you can claim a straight deduction for tools costing $300 or less but for more, you’ll write it off over its life. You can’t claim a tool individually so unless a set costs less than $300, you’ll need to write it off over a few years.

The same rules apply to equipment like phones, printers, computers, tablets, and mobile phones. Just claim the business or work part of the cost. You can also claim the cost of your business vehicle. You can use the temporary full expensing to claim a full cost deduction. A passenger can or ute will be subject to the car limit. Employees can claim depreciation over its life but would need to keep a logbook for work and private use. A passenger car or ute with less than 5000 km travel can be claimed a set 72 c/km allowance for every km travelled for business.

You can also claim a tax deduction for work-related clothing costs such as the cost of purchase and getting it cleaned. Tradies often claim protective clothing and footwear, fire-resistant clothing, steel-capped boots, safety-coloured boots, hardhats, gloves, overalls, non-slip safety shoes, compulsory work uniform, heavy duty shirts and trousers, sun protection gear.

You can also claim a tax deduction for damaged, obsolete or unusable materials and unpaid invoices.

Don’t forget to keep records such as receipts and invoices to make completing your tax returns smoother. Tax is complicated and Sky Accountants will help ensure you get it right.
