I do my own taxes so I expense items. I have requested invoices from 2Degrees, with Vodafone it appears they said they are not oblibged to provide invoices for under $50 top ups.
This is the first time I am doing my own tax, from the IRD videos it appears when I claim them I simply put in the amount every interval like 6 monthly cellphone cost and the amount. So many $20 top ups will be quite a bit for the 6 months. So if I just put this figure in it ... I won't have GST receipts b/c Vodafone said they only provide it for $50 top ups.
Also are the GST receipts when available actually top ups or are they from the actual units consumed etc? I read Vodafone AU and they said that top ups are not bought, they are simply transferred from money to credits so they provide invoices from consumed units.
Other than going to the shop and buying top ups each time instead of doing it online.....
