SSAT and Allowable Business Expenses

Just going through P&L's working out what expenses SSAT may disallow. Obviously Depreciation is out as is Donations/Gifts.  Does anyone know what else, we only have the basics, no vehicle or equipment leasing.
Its a hard one Julco, you seem to be in the same scenario that I was 18 months ago with very little help here from site moderators in many of your posts, unless you are receiving private emails.
I had depreciation, bank interest and fees from a business loan added back as income, yes thats right, bank interest. Then I had the SSAT make up there own assumption to what my income was.
First point you have to ask the SSAT is what is there qualifications. If they don't answer that they are a certified practicing accountant, then they are out of there jurisdiction.
If I remember correctly this case is all about your partners "taxable income" and you have to make this very clear to them. Not your income or the house hold income. They will find a way to add back fringe benefits onto income and that will be in there findings, they will not give you a second chance to dispute this and any other findings that they come up with. You will have to tell them what percentage should be added back as fringe benefits.
Thanks Taylor, I really appreciate your help….not many private emails I'm afraid.  As for SSAT, they can add back 50% of the expenses and the income would still be less than what CSA deemed.  I just wondered which ones they may question so I can have information available on then. One more quesion (oh how I wish there was only one more question!) the oral submission that SSAT ask for at the hearing, is that a statement of why the CSA decision was incorrect?  We've done one that's 2 and a half pages long with each statement referenced to the reams of paperwork received from CSA and quoting 66A (4) of the CSA Act.

Taylor are you stating that you expect help from the site moderators and thats all they are here for? and that perhaps others should be or ought to be receiving public or private help.

What do you think the moderators are here for?

Help is a two way street of give and take - not you just taking and others giving. Try and find the donations link
