Introduction to Security Guard Tax Return

If you work as a security guard in Australia, you are entitled to claim a variety of tax deductions that can help you save money on your tax return. At Tax Savers, our accounting firm has helped numerous security guards to maximize their tax refunds and minimize their tax liabilities by identifying and claiming all the deductions they are eligible for.

Deductible Expenses for Security Guards

As a security guard, you can claim a range of expenses on your tax return, including the cost of your uniform, protective gear, and equipment, such as flashlights and handcuffs. You can also claim expenses related to training courses, travel expenses, and parking fees incurred while on duty. In addition, you may be eligible to claim a deduction for any donations you have made to a registered charity during the financial year.

Claiming Depreciation for Equipment

If you have purchased equipment or tools for your work as a security guard, you may be eligible to claim a depreciation deduction on your tax return. Depreciation allows you to deduct the cost of your equipment over its useful life, rather than claiming the full cost in a single year. Our accounting firm can help you determine the depreciation rate and claim the appropriate deduction on your tax return.

Understanding Working from Home Expenses

If you have been working from home due to COVID-19, you may be eligible to claim a deduction for home office expenses on your tax return. This includes expenses related to the running of your home office, such as electricity, internet, and phone bills. At Tax Savers, we can help you calculate your home office expenses and claim the appropriate deduction on your tax return.

Claiming Travel Expenses

If you are required to travel for work as a security guard, you can claim a range of travel expenses on your Individual tax return. This includes expenses related to accommodation, meals, and transport. To claim these expenses, you must keep accurate records of your travel, such as receipts and a travel diary. Our tax accounting firm can help you keep track of your travel expenses and claim the appropriate deductions on your tax return.
