Legislation passed by Parliament introduces a new test that will restrict some companies from accessing the lower company tax rate from the 2017-2018 financial year.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is targeting home office expenses and has identified a high number of mistakes in this area. The common mistakes identified by the ATO are taxpayers claiming expenses they didn’t incur, claiming expenses that were reimbursed by their employer, claiming private expenses and not retaining sufficient records.
