Hi there, I am trying to clarify if my partner and I can do this for our 2020 tax returns. Basically we bought a brand new car in July 2019 and he used it for his job at the time (kept a log book for 12 weeks) however he left his job in February 2020 and needed a more suitable vehicle for his new job so I sold my old car and started using the new car from this point on in my sole trader business, I have kept a 12 week log book also.
So my question is: Can he claim his logbook method deductions for the part of the 2019/2020 financial year that he used the car for and then can I claim it for the remainder part of the year when I took use of it?
Just to clarify the finance on the car and the car itself was purchased in both of our names and registered for private use.
