Deduction for study fees

Question from Henry-George updated on 14th September 2015:

If I wanted to study a diploma of business management or a bachelor of finance to help improve the efficiency of my property investing business, would my course fees be a tax deductible expense?



Our expert Mark Withers responded:

Your quest for knowledge is excellent. But I don’t believe that university fees of that nature would be considered to have a sufficient link or nexus with the derivation of rental income to meet the test for deductibility.
