Facts

  • If you buy a car in instalments, you are entitled to a deduction for your interest expenses.
  • If you want your deduction during the year, you need to change your preliminary income assessment. 
  • If you have redeemed your loan, you need to change your preliminary income assessment so it only includes the interest expenses you had from 1 January until the date you redeemed your loan. 
  • Check your tax assessment notice when it comes in March to see if the figures related to your interest expenses are correct.
