Thankyou for the information.

I planned on claiming 100% of internet but perhaps i should lower it by 5-10%, in case the ATO ever audits.

I wonder what tradies do, say like a carpenter if he had to buy a hammer to use for work, he can’t do his job without it, but a couple of times a year he might pull the hammer out to hang a picture or something else in his house. Would he then have to claim 99% of the cost of the hammer not 100%.

I think in my mind i view the internet cost as an essential tool of running an online business so 100% would be reasonable, but i get the ATO may see it differently.
