Reasonable Travel Allowance Claims within Australia

Where an employee, company director, or office holder receives an allowance for travel costs within Australia and the person makes a claim for the costs of accommodation, food, drink and incidental expenses up to certain limits, then the person is not required to keep written evidence (i.e. receipts) of the expenses. These deduction limits are based on the salary of the person and the destination of the trip.

The travel must be for business purposes and the person must be sleeping away from home. Note this concession does not apply to self employed persons, including partners in a partnership.
