Example 

  • Background: finished course in Nov 2017, pay for the subject in Feb 2018.
  • solution - claim if
    • you already paid for it during the time when the subject was undertaken (before november 2017)
    • OR you paid for the subject now, after the period the subject was undertaken & finished (finished in Nov17 and paid in Feb 18) , it still be ok to claim for it because you are still working in the same field that related to the subject you studied for ;
    • BUT if you stop working after Nov 2017 and then paid for the fees after that time say in Jan 2018 onwards, then it’s a NO, you can’t claim for it because there is no income that directly related to the subject


The course must have a sufficient connection to your current employment and:

  • Maintain or improve the specific skills or knowledge you require in your current employment, or
  • Result in, or is likely to result in, an increase in your income from your current employment.
