I'm interested in purchasing an item online from the US-based manufacturer directly. This item is intended for work purposes.
Normally, I could get the same product here, but its been out of stock for a while locally.
If I were to purchase this item from overseas, would I still be able claim this as a work-related expense against my personal income tax?
Thanks for your advice!
- Did check the ATO pages, but they don't seem to cover this specific scenario (one page covers GST claims for business tax, etc)
- Have always heard this discussed casually but couldn't find any concrete info on this. Does anyone have personal experience with this perhaps?
- Record keeping : Obviously, the supplied invoice wouldn't have an ABN. I'm going to assume the invoice I get from the manufacturer will be sufficient, maybe add in a credit card statement as well.
