I bought a new Personal Computer (Laptop) for both work and personal use in November 2014 as the 2nd hand ones were always breaking down or crashing. Also bought a new Photographic Camera in 2014 for both uses as well. I also invested in a new Cellular Phone last year as the one I had was 2nd hand and very unreliable. This I done just before embarking on an arduous film shoot in KZN where I would be very dependant on it for communication purposes as to the ever changing schedule. Long story short. . . I have never claimed for wear and tear and as I use it for work purposes too I would like to find out whether its possible as a tax deductible and how I should go about it

Kind Regards

Ashley
