As per my other post, we run our business via a Discretionary Trust with a corporate Trustee. Whilst my wife and I are Directors of the Company, I am also the sole employee. I pay myself a salary of $80K + Super to stay within the 30c tax bracket but the question of how to make maximum benefit of the Trust structure in regards to car travel expenses puzzles me. I understand the travel component of home to my first client and client to home is “personal travel” and therefore not tax claimable as an employee whilst claiming a per K expenses (as part of my employment package) from the Trust would be classified as taxable income and therefore not a great idea (i.e. I would be better distributing this to my wife or kids to ensure ths money stays in the 30c tax bracket). So my question is, how do I get the best outcome? Do I pay myself the the 5,000 allowance for travel which the ATO allows tax free (ie Method 1 Cents per K) and then claim the “work related portion” (i.e. client to client) of my travel as an employee? Actually, is this double dipping and not allowed? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
