transaction fee cashback, query

Postby Smithy01 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 10:48 pm

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick question for tax purposes...
Someone paid me recently by using their credit/debit card and my card provider (izettle) took their usual commission. However a bit later on i noticed a 'transaction fee cashback' had been deposited in my business bank account.
Can someone advise me if this credited amount is taxable?
Thank you :)

Yes this income will be taxable in exactly the same manner that the original transaction fee was tax deductible- i would treat this income as a direct credit against the original transaction fee that you have paid.
