Most employees cannot claim employment expenses. You cannot deduct the cost of travel to & from work, or other expenses, such as most tools & clothing.
You have to keep records for each year you claim expenses. These records must include all the following:
- a daily record of your expenses, together with your receipts & any cancelled cheques
- any ticket stubs for travel
- any monthly credit card statements
- a record of each motor vehicle you used for employment. This record must show both the total kilometres you drove & the kilometres you drove for employment purposes in the year.
Note: you cannot deduct more than the income you received when you did not perform the duties of your employment.
