Deductions for COVID-19 tests

06 Apr, 2022 | All articles, Tax, General | Return|

The ATO confirms that COVID-19 tests purchased by employees for work purposes from 1 July 2021 can be claimed as a deduction.

This is the result of legislation that passed through Parliament shortly after the 2022-23 Federal Budget was handed down. This also means that employers who provide COVID-19 tests for their employees for work purposes can generally reduce the taxable value of the relevant fringe benefit by applying the otherwise deductible rule.
