As requested by a friend, here is a brief list of things you can claim that you might not be aware of, if you are a marketing manager. These deductions also relate to individuals in similar industries that may require research and promotions such as real estate sales agents and event coordinators.
The ATO has recently adopted a very aggressive strategy to collect more tax revenue. Earlier this year, they sent out hundreds of thousands of letters to taxpayers, warning them that their deductions may have been overstated, and advising to review their claims in order to avoid paying back tax and being penalised in the event of an audit. Many taxpayers saw this letter as a precursor to an audit, despite the letter stating that if the taxpayer believes deductions were claimed correctly, they need not take any further action.
