Are you spending on meals lavishly, just so you can claim it? ATO mentioned that they will pay extra
attention to label D5 deductions this income year.
Spending on meals while working different jobs are not deductable. Private ruling does highlights
any uncommon situations for work-related expenses. ATO published articles reminding taxpayers to
be careful when claiming work-related expenses.
It’s not so that you cannot claim overtime meals expenses, but only if paid overtime meal allowance
under industrial instrument and/or only to the actual amount that has actually been spent.
