Seeking professional advice when starting a business

From 1 July 2015, the professional expenses associated with starting a new business, such as legal and accounting fees, are deductible in the year those expenses are incurred rather than deducted over a five-year period as was the case in previous years.

If you established a business in 2015-2016, you should speak to your client manager about claiming professional advice fees as an expense.
