I found a very useful article for freelancers during tax time Some comments are just as helpful.

10 Tax Deductions Freelancers Can Make

by Thursday Bram

The article is directed mainly to the US freelancers but it also includes links to other countries:


Australian Taxation Office (Business Deductions)


UK Revenue and Customs (Small Business Topics)


Canada Revenue Agency (Small Business Topics)
