Hi all, I've been reading some really good discussions here so I am hoping you might be able to help me also? I'm an employee for an IT company, however over the past financial year I have been traveling to Asia several times to carry out volunteer IT work. This has been totally unrelated to my employment, but still in the same profession. Until now I have not had an ABN or any tax/company setup. Is there any way I can claim deductions for my expenses in relation to this volunteer work over the past year? Going forward, if I keep earning an income from employment in Australia and carrying on volunteer work is there a way to claim my expenses as deductions? So far my tax agent has said it's not possible, so I'm looking for creative idea's! Thanks in advance.
