New truck driver meal rates

20 July 2018

The tax office has published the 2018-19 reasonable amounts for employee truck driver meals.

The reasonable amounts for 2018-19 are:

  • breakfast: $24.70
  • lunch: $28.15
  • dinner: $48.60

In July 2017, the tax office announced that employee truck drivers would only be able to claim $55.30 per day in meal allowances without detailed receipts. The ATA and other associations worked together to get the decision reversed.
