It is not just another accessory, that new handbag may be a tax deduction

Pin it
Some recent comments from the Australian Tax Office (“ATO”) have been music to the ears of equality campaigners but also to the the retailers who sell the goods produced by our great fashion houses. What am I talking about? Style tips from the ATO? Not quite.

The tax laws say that a person can claim a deduction for any asset used for work purposes. This has always been understood to mean that men can claim a deduction for the reasonable cost of a briefcase which they use to carry laptops, notes from meetings and whatever else they need. Now, my female colleagues carry just as much stuff as me…often more as they are generally better prepared for the meetings….but they don’t like briefcases.

This is a point that some of the more progressive members of the tax office are acknowledging. The consensus opinion is that the use of the bag rather than its name is what is important. So, if a handbag is most appropriate for carrying your communication devices, notes and other important items when you travel to your place of work then the cost should be deductible.

Of course, before you race out and spend several years’ salary on an Hermes Birken  remember that the ATO, if reviewing your deduction, will consider the cost of the bag relative to your annual income and the function it serves. We also remind you to always check with your tax professional.

Making Creative Collaboration Work – The TFP Win/Win Agreement

Pin it

Time for Print (TFP). Whether you’re new to the industry or a veteran of your craft, we’re sure this term means something to you. We hope it’s been a great chance to improve your portfolio while gaining real world industry experience, but we know you’ve probably all got a horror story to tell when it comes to TFP and unpaid work. Whether you’ve been left wanting more from your talent or wishing for more from your photographer, too often the question is raised “why should I work for free?” To that the right.fit says it’s time for a new mindset towards TFP shoots and unpaid work. Working for a collective creative goal that benefits your career isn’t really working for free at all. Because with clear communication leading you towards a common goal on a shared timeline the outcome isn’t just a professional portfolio that makes talent and photographer look amazing. It’s also the groundwork for your future. When you multiply time, attitude and creativity you get a formula for success, it’s the right.fit’s Win/Win Agreement.
