I have a query in relation to work visa and if it can be claimed as a deduction?
The story is that I was on a Graduate Work Visa (485 subclass) which is valid for 1.5 to 2 years. During this time period, I commenced my full-time employment in field of study. And when my visa was about to expire, my employer decided to sponsor me to remain in Australia and keep on working in my role. I incurred a migration lawyer fees as well as Visa Application Fees for Visa 457 subclass.
Can I claim this expense as a Deduction in my tax return?
