What can you claim for your dental business?

As a dental professional, it’s essential to understand the tax deductions you can claim for your business. The Australian taxation system allows you to claim expenses that are incurred in the course of running your dental business, such as rent, wages, and equipment. These deductions can significantly reduce your taxable income, helping you to minimise your tax liability and increase your profits. However, ensuring that you’re claiming only legitimate business expenses and keeping accurate records to support your claims is essential.

Below is a list of the tax deductions available to dental businesses in Australia to help you maximise your deductions and optimise your tax position.

  • Rent and leasing expenses for your dental clinic or office;
  • Wages and salaries for your employees, including your dental assistant and receptionist;
  • Professional fees, such as those paid to your accountant or lawyer;
  • Equipment* and supplies used in your dental practice, such as dental chairs, x-ray machines, and dental tools;
  • Maintenance and repair costs for your dental equipment and clinic;
  • Advertising and marketing expenses, such as website development and promotional materials;
  • Business insurance premiums, including professional indemnity and public liability insurance;
  • Training and professional development costs for yourself and your employees;
  • Membership fees for affiliation with professional bodies;
  • Office expenses, such as stationery, computer equipment, and internet and phone bills.

* Depreciation is claimed over a period of time on some of the items above.

It’s important to note that this list is not exhaustive, and there may be other legitimate expenses that you can claim as tax deductions for your dental business. Additionally, it is crucial to keep accurate records of your business expenses and seek professional advice from a qualified accountant to ensure you maximise your deductions while staying compliant with tax laws and regulations.
