What is LAFHA?

LAFHA is an allowance, approved by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) which reduces your taxable income to assist with food, rent and other removal costs when you are genuinely working away from home. LAFHA is paid in two main components, the Food Component and the Accommodation Component – however there are also additional travel, removal and storage of household effects and connection of utilities components.

Who is eligible?

All employees working in Australia that are required to live away from home as a condition of their employment may be considered for eligibility. The one major condition is that you must continue to have unconditional use of your primary residence at any time while receiving LAFHA.
