Renewal of police check

Could you please confirm and advise of the deductibility of the following:

1. A nurse is required to renew her police check whilst remaining in the same employment position, needs to be done every 3 years.

2. When obtaining the police check renewal she is required to provide birth certificate and marriage certificate which she had to pay for on top of the police check, are these costs tax deductible?

Thanks in advance for your information.

Hi @SB2,

 

Thanks for your patience whilst we checked information regarding your query.

 

You can claim a deduction for the cost of providing a police check to your employer as you are required to, in order for you to maintain your current employment.


However you cannot claim a deduction for the cost of obtaining your birth and marriage certificates as these are expenses of a private nature.


You can find information about income and deductions you can claim specifically for Nurses, midwives and direct carers on our website.

 

Thanks, JodieH.
