Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Company car used by Defacto Director

Hi there,

 

The company has bought a car and it has been provided to the defacto director i.e. the partner of the director to use 50% for work and 50% for leisure.

My understanding that company can only claim 50% of the value of the car to write off in books and luxury car tax is non-deductible.

 

Question - Do I need to ask the director to give a declaration that the private use of the car is 50% under some format. Please advise.

 

thanks
