Further (and if John is still checking this thread may be able to confirm this is correct) – If you are purchasing from overseas (or from Australia for that matter) for the purposes of completing work for a client then this might be a ‘cost of sale’ rather than straight business expense. I don’t think this will effect the tax question/answer but if you are tracking your outgoings in software etc these might be a cost to you of doing the sale, rather than an expense of running your business.

This is correct Jacqui. Either way is acceptable as far as the ATO is concerned but, from an accounting point of view, you are right.
