FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

-- Mobilyser, the world’s first mobile phone and data expense tracking application has been launched in Australia, signalling a new era for business and individual expense claims.
Developed in Australia by JKP Tech, Mobilyser is an innovative application and portal that syncs with mobile phones logs, allowing users to easily tag contacts and dialled numbers as work-related or personal. It then calculates the claimable total on calls, data & SMS in an easy to read report.
Designed to take the guess work out of expense tracking for individuals and businesses, the launch of Mobilyser is timely. In June this year, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) released a statement listing work related claims on telephone usage in its top three areas for crack downs. With Australians making AU $19.5 billion in work-related claims last year, the ATO has issued a stern warning to Australians seeking deductions without sufficient supporting documentation.
Founder Robbie Adams said it is both the simplicity of use and the accuracy of reporting that will make Mobilyser a must-have tool for individuals and businesses. “We all know the tedium of pouring over phone bills for expense claims. Even when we have all the information in front of us it’s not easy to calculate all the genuine work calls. Even harder is making an accurate assessment of work-related data usage. Whether users lodge regular expense claims to their employers or an annual claim on their tax return, Mobilyser can generate detailed logs and reliable totals at the touch of a button.”
As well as taking the pressure off employees, employers can be sure that when their team is using Mobilyser, expense claims are accurate and auditable.
“Business is no longer 9 to 5 and our mobile technologies mean we can be more efficient and flexible than ever before. Few of us want to police our employees, but this connectivity can come at a considerable financial cost. Mobilyser provides an accurate breakdown of call and data usage, meaning businesses bare only their fair share of the bill,” Mr Adams said.
A recent study commissioned by the Australian Media and Communications Authority reported a 196% increase in Australian’s use of mobile phones to access the internet in the 12 months to December 2013*. Almost 60% of Australians have a smart phone, putting us among the highest users in the world – ahead of the United Kingdom and the USA. With a technology patent pending, Mobiliser’s ability to track both calls and data usage will put an end to the countless hours of manual analysis for employers and employees alike.
Mobilyser uses the ATO’s recommended calculation method to deliver the best result. The easy to read report can be submitted to a tax agent as evidence of phone and data expenses and is compliant with MyTax, the ATOs new online lodgement system via MyTax.
