If you're a sole trader carrying out a business, you may be eligible for a small business tax offset. You can claim up to $1000 a year, and your offset is calculated based on the net small business income for the tax year.
Use this workpaper to enter the net small business income at Item 15A, so we can calculate the tax offset based on that.
You can access this worksheet from the Tax workpapers & schedules drop-down on the right-side panel.
