INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997

CHAPTER 5 - ADMINISTRATION  

PART 5-30 - RECORD-KEEPING AND OTHER OBLIGATIONS  

Division 900 - Substantiation rules  

Subdivision 900-B - Substantiating work expenses  

SECTION 900-55  Exception for overseas travel allowance expenses  

 ITAA 36

900-55(1)  

You can deduct a *travel allowance expense for travel outside Australia without getting written evidence under the same conditions as for domestic *travel allowances, except that you still have to get written evidence for losses or outgoings for accommodation.

900-55(2)  

Consequently, in deciding whether the total of the losses or outgoings you claim is reasonable, the Commissioner must disregard losses or outgoings for accommodation.

900-55(3)  

However, for overseas travel covered by a *travel allowance you must still keep travel records if the travel involves you being away from your ordinary residence for 6 or more nights in a row: Subdivision 900-F tells you about travel records.
