One of our most popular items in our seminar presentations is the information on tax ruling TR 95/34. The ruling deals with taxation for itinerant workers...ie YOU!
According to the ruling, to be classed as an itinerant worker:
- travel must be a fundamental part of your work or;
- you have a 'web' of work places in your regular employment, (that is, you have no fixed place of work) or;
- you continually travel from one work site to another, regularly working at more than one work site before returning to your usual place of residence.
With planning and proper record keeping, under TR 95/34, you may be able to claim a number of tax deductions (as an itinerant worker) for certain expenses such as motor vehicle expenses, meals and accommodation.
