Car expenses deductions

Motor vehicle expenses
The deductions you can claim for the costs relating to the use of a motor vehicle depend on the business structure you operate under, the type of vehicle used and how the vehicle is used.
Tax concessions - cars
You may be eligible to purchase a car, car parts and medical aids and appliances for your car without incurring goods and services tax (GST). If you make modifications to your luxury car to enable you to drive it or be transported in it, you may also be eligible for an exemption from luxury car tax (LCT).
Vehicle and travel expenses
You can claim vehicle and other travel expenses directly connected with your work, but you can't claim for normal trips between home and work – this is considered private travel.
