15 Apr 13 Cap for self-education expense deductions announced

In media release No 2013/048, issued 13 April 2013, the Treasurer, Wayne Swan, announced that from 1 July 2014, work related self-education expenses will be subject to an annual cap of $2,000 a person.

Education expenses include formal qualifications and associated tuition fees, textbooks, stationery and travel expenses and also conferences, seminars and self-organised study tours.

Currently employers are not liable for fringe benefits tax for education and training they provide to their employees – this treatment will be retained, unless an employee salary sacrifices to obtain these benefits.
