First of all, welcome to 2016!  I trust you all had an enjoyable Christmas and New Year with family and friends.   2016 is going to be a big year for McKern and Associates and our clients..

We are seeing more and more Free Will Kits being offered and unfortunately many of them are being rendered invalid as the will maker was not made aware of the basic requirements involved in order to ensure their validity.

Over the last few years we have seen a large increase in the number of FIFO (fly in fly out) workers and people employed in mining sites. Many mining employers pay a significant amount in allowances which consequently have seen an increased level of allowable deductions, and as such the industry has become a target of the Australian Tax Office (ATO) with many employees being subject to review and audit.  For this reason, see below for a guideline as to what type of expenses a FIFO worker can claim as a Tax Deduction.
