To add a deduction, click on ‘More’.

Next, select ‘Deduction’.

Firstly, select whether it is a pre-tax deduction, post-tax deduction or a non-reportable deduction.

Definition: A pre-tax deduction deducts the amount from the taxable income before tax has been calculated. Tax is then calculated off this reduced amount.

A post-tax deduction deducts the amount from the gross income after the tax has been calculated. This doesn’t affect tax.

A non-reportable deduction acts in the same way as a pre-tax deduction but the deduction is not reported to the ATO.

The next thing you’ll need to decide is the type of deduction it is; fees or workplace giving.

Finally, add the amount.
